Seniors' Coffee Club

The fortnightly Seniors Coffee Club has resumed. Come along and meet new people or catch up with old friends. The group meets at 10am on Tuesday mornings at different locations. Attendees can choose to purchase food and refreshments. Visit the events calendar for details, or contact us on 9237 9339. 

The Purple Road project

The Purple Road is an eighteen-metre craft project made of knitted or crochet purple flowers. The campaign aims to raise awareness of elder abuse.  Hand made flowers for the road are contributed via art and craft groups and older adults in the community.

Get involved this October. Help the City create flowers for our own purple road. Pick up a craft pack from Subiaco Library and return your completed flowers by Monday 2 November.

Government subsidised programs such as Home and Community Care (HACC) are delivered by a variety of service providers to support eligible City residents to remain in their own homes. For further information please visit the My AgedCare website or phone 1800 200 422.
