As part of Delta’s 21st celebrations last year we held a survey which asked people what they liked about Delta and for ideas on how we could improve.
The Evergreen Club is a daily activity programme for older people who are seeking additional support in improving and maintaining their current everyday life, health, and wellbeing. Most members live alone, with their partner or another family/whanau.
Through the programme, the elderly are able to participate in the lively interaction, gentle exercise, games, outings, and other activities. A hot meal and morning and afternoon tea are provided. The Club runs 10am-2pm on weekdays with up to sixty members able to attend once or twice a week each. Members’ health is monitored by a caring team of well-trained and experienced staff.
Members’ highly rate the programme, and their partners and family/whanau have expressed what a huge support it is to them also. We have often seen new members developing a renewed enthusiasm for life with the Club being a highlight of their week.
Our vision is to see our members valued by society and encouraged and supported to live as healthy, long and independent life in the community as possible.
If you or someone you know could benefit from being involved in the programme please contact our Evergreen Club manager, who will be able to organize the needs assessment process required for joining.
