Olive Grove House
Olive Grove House is the name of our centre-based respite program located on our main Olivet grounds. As part of our commitment to care, it’s equipped with everything we need to cater for people with both high and low care physical needs.
What is Adult Community Day ? Centre-based respite?
Adult Community day centre provides engaging and coordinated day programs for older adults who are looking to socialise or simply require care during the day. For carers, it’s a respite from caregiving, providing peace of mind while your loved ones are in our care. At Olivet, we understand there are pressures that come with both living independently or in the care of another. Our adult community day centre was established to alleviate these pressures day by day, whilst fostering relationships and maintaining independence.
As we get older, the need for mental stimulation and socialisation doesn’t just disappear. In fact, it’s arguably more important than ever as getting out of the home becomes more challenging. Olivet’s adult community day services cover everything needed to enrich participants lives, validating and building them up socially and physically. With a range of coordinated activity programs, low and high personal care, and easy access to additional health services, Olivet adult community day centre has been one of Melbourne’s most loved day care services for more than 15 years.
