Home care is for everyone: young and old, families with or without children, the elderly and all caregivers

Activity center

Our activity centers are specifically designed to allow senior citizens to actively participate in our society. We aim to increase the general well-being by offering various activities, so isolation can be prevented. Every week the elderly can meet at our three locations in Santa Maria, Mamayaweg and Fuik. Under the guidance of an activity supervisor, health education and exercise is provided. The activity centers have various activities such as crafts, bowling, memory games, communication games, singing and handball. Occasionally, trips are also made outside the centers. All activities are organized to enhance the welfare, physical and mental health of the elderly. Breakfast, drinks and snacks are also provided by the activity centers. We also offer transport to the elderly who do not have transport to visit the activity center.

  • The centers are open during the week from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and are open on the following days:
  • Sta. Maria: only on Monday.
  • Mamayaweg: Tuesday to Friday.
  • Fuik: Monday to Friday.

 

The criteria for registration of the activity center:

  • Age from 60 years old.
  • Ability to actively participate in activities on all areas: physical, communicative, social and mental.

 

Registrations for the activity center are made via the Care Central. For more information about the application, please refer to our page about the Care Central.
