Halcyon Social Support Centre

Dementia program

About Us

Halcyon Positive Ageing Activity Centre is available to Monash residents who are frail, experience memory loss and other associated challenges related to dementia. While members are enjoying themselves at the centre their carers can enjoy some time to themselves knowing their loved ones are being cared for.

What We Offer

The program is held in a safe, welcoming and home-like environment in the beautiful, green surroundings of the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

Qualified and experienced staff and volunteers support a range of social activities.

Some of our regular activities include exercise to music, sensory activities, reminiscing, gardening, trivia and quizzes, cultural celebrations, arts and crafts, outings and visits by entertainers.
