ABOUT US: SENIOR-LINK
KIA-ORA, WELCOME TO SENIOR-LINK,
Senior-Link is a non-profit trust that aims to keep the elderly socially connected, active and supported.
We operate two days per week in our central South Dunedin location.
MONDAY and FRIDAY
Our qualified staff, aided by an effective team of volunteers ensures that Senior-Link is a friendly, caring environment where people are treated with respect.
Whether it is to provide carers with a break or to help isolated elderly people to have regular social contact and build friendships with their peers, Senior-Link provides:
Quality Day/Respite Care: Free* to most of our clients.
We provide a nutritious, two course lunch and morning and afternoon tea.
A wide range of activities include: craft, art, cards, music, housie, quizzes and scrabble to keep the mind sharp.
(*The disability allowance- where eligible can off-set the cost of session fees. We assist clients to apply for Disability Allowance funding.)
Transportation: Many of our clients benefit from our friendly pick up service. We pick up clients from a range of Dunedin suburbs, including: South Dunedin, Caversham, St Kilda, St Clair, Musselburgh and Waverley. We can also help to organize transport from further afield or those with mobility issues.
Give us a call, come visit, we offer our first few visits free!

SOCIAL, ACTIVE, SUPPORT
We aim to help elderly people remain active and involved in their community.
Our session fee is $30.00 per day, we charge less for those who provide their own transport.
We believe that you should only pay for what you use! That's why our session fee is only required to be paid for sessions that clients attend.
