Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi Aboriginal Corporation – Aged Disability
We work to help elders stay safe and strong by offering disability support and enabling access to visit country (home). We look out for opportunities to support elders, helping people to stay at home on communities, providing warm blankets and clothing in the winter. The public has supported our annual blanket appeal generously.
Frail aged people on communities can become ill quickly during the bitterly cold desert winters, and sadly some pass away early because of neglect. We seek out those who may have fallen between the cracks and offer our support. It is vital that we renew the supply of blankets each year because of the harsh conditions.
YMCA NT Darwin Senior Program
Our senior bowls program
On Thursday mornings, our Drop in Centre is the home of our Senior Bowls Family. They come over to play bowls, but it’s not just about the game, it’s a way of building strong and trusted relationships with others. A web of laughter and support connects the participants.
Outings and events
Some of our members have been with us for over 20 years, and they have proven to be an essential element of our community services. We also organise outings and activities designed specifically for seniors, coordinated with YMCA workers that accompany them to lunches at the water front, bowling and health and fitness classes, and celebrations such as Easter and Christmas.
We do welcome new participants to our seniors program, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
