A good life is one that is full of enjoyment, experiences, encouragement and independence. It involves remaining stimulated, challenged, socially active and physically healthy.
Alzheimer's Queensland works with our clients to pursue pleasurable, active and independent lives with the help of our Multi Service Centres. The Multi Service Centres provide a restorative and wellness approach to support older people stay engaged within their community. We also offer customised serviced to people with early onset dementia and progressive neurological conditions for an optimised quality of life.
Our program aims to support an individual to build relationships, pursue interests and maintain independence, while simultaneously providing their carer or loved one with a temporary break from their caring role. You have the flexible option where we can come to you or you can visit our centre.
AQ Multi Service Centres are based in home-like cottages in order to evoke feelings of comfort, relaxation and personability, familiarity and independence. Activities are carried out in intimate groups which ensures each person receives personalised care whilst being supported to achieve individual goals.
