Community Connections is about expanding options and opportunities, ensuring that the support that we offer provides choice to the people who receive our services.

HERE 2 THERE

Here 2 There is a day trip opportunity with a delightful variety of places to visit and things to see and do. Join us for a delicious Devonshire Tea and then jump on board our Mini Bus together with a group of 10 to explore and enjoy our wonderful region. H2T is for those who like a bit more of a sense of adventure~ it’s a bit of a mystery trip on each occasion from  the day of the week, to the people who attend and the location/event.

MAN 2 MAN

As the name indicates, this program is for the men only. Man 2 Man is about getting out and about whilst indulging in secret men’s business ~ fishing, war museums, scenic drives,  BBQs, refreshing cold beverages and, most importantly,  good, old fashioned male companionship.

GIRLS DAY OUT

For the girls that wanna have fun! Indulging in all things for the ladies only: shopping, movies, dining, cuppas & cakes  or whatever you like.  It’s your call! Sign up, put the lippy on and get ready for your next girls day out.

GROWING STRONGER

Use it or loose it. This program varies from joining up to a suitably run program offered by the Gold Coast City Council, swimming at a local pool, going for a walk in the great outdoors or maybe getting back out on that bowling green. Give us a call and we’ll arrange everything from transport to sussing out the activity. But wait there’s more ~ we’ll also have one of our awesome Support Workers tag along to give you that little bit of a helping hand (and maybe encouragement) that you may need!

CONNECT 2 TECH

In response to the growing interest in IT from clients of all ages we have created an opportunity for computer lessons with a Tutor who will give support to our clients and carers on their particular device (ipad/tablet/laptop/home PC).

This program teaches basic internet, email and applications and is based around individual goals and learning needs. One of our students is 92 years and when asked her goal, she said that she wanted to ‘shock and surprise’ her family by sending them an email! Connect 2 Tech is about learning how to bank and shop online, skype your families and friends, save your favourite photos and download your favourite music ~ in an easy to learn in environment.

CARER PAMPER DAYS

As a Carer it is a busy time where a much needed break is often not possible. Understanding this, Liberty invites Carers to regular Carer Pamper Days and best of all ~  it’s ‘our shout’.

Carers are welcomed for a delicious Devonshire Morning Tea and then hop on board our bus , call it a mystery trip. Maybe we’re off to a restaurant, a scenic drive or a picnic in a park. The day includes fellowship with others who also experience ‘what its like for you’ and also some practical conversation with staff who provide information and individual support. Sometimes it’s just an ear to listen that makes all the difference.

Leave your cares and concerns at the door, and we’ll treat you to a day that is special and all about YOU!

ALLIED HEALTH
