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

10am- 4pm

 

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.
