Diversitat Christmas Appeal

The Diversitat Christmas Appeal has been established to provide much needed social support to elderly people from multicultural communities within the Geelong and Barwon region. Last year alone, Diversitat Aged Support assisted over 580 clients, from 27 different countries of birth with 21 languages other than English. Delivering programs and support from the delivery of over 5,000 community meals, and providing social and physical activities such as the community garden, arts and craft, recreation and physical activity and a Café Style Support program for carers. 

Diversitat Aged Support provides social support programs designed to promote our clients independence and remain in their home for as long as possible. Programs include activities, daytrips, art and craft, social engagement, promoting emotional wellbeing and healthy living and support for carers.

Whilst for many Christmas is traditionally a time where family and friends come together, it is important for us to also remember the wellbeing and loneliness that some members of our community can feel during this time. At Diversitat Aged Support, our programs provide ongoing social connection and support throughout the year, as well as providing much needed friendship during this time of the year. 

  "Nobody is home. I am single - I talk to everyone here (at Diversitat) - I talk , play billards, play cards. If I stay home quickly depression.  I go on the small bus. Trips to city, to the Daylesford, Ballarat, Lorne, Torquay, Ocean grove. I talk on the bus - a lot."  Diversitat Aged Support Client

 

For many Christmas is a time for friends and family, and being surrounded by those you love. For many of our clients we are an extended family that ensures ongoing connection to community.
