Independence, activities, and friendship for older people
Enliven’s community day programmes provide a friendly and supportive environment where you can connect with others and do the things you enjoy.
Enliven Older People is an approved Ministry of Health ad accredited ACC service. We offer activity and companionship programmes for older people living in their own homes or with family. For family carers, day programmes provide a chance to take a break. It’s also a great opportunity for older people living alone to enjoy quality social interactions.
Our community day programmes run on weekdays and include:
Our aim is to support you to achieve your own goals and we work hard to find the right solution for you, in partnership with you, your family and any other organisation that may be involved in your care.
Calm and confident behind the scenes, our experienced team of service advisors can help and guide with those next steps.
Arrange a referral from your GP or directly with a Needs Assessment Service Coordinator (NASC). Phone NASC on 06 834 1871.

Falls are not a ‘normal’ part of ageing. As we grow older, underlying health conditions or problems with balance, strength or mobility do increase our risk of falling. Have you slipped, tripped or fallen in the last year, can’t get out of a chair without using your hands, or have avoided activities because you’re afraid you might lose your balance? Then you could be at risk of a fall.
The good news is many falls are preventable, so stay active, stay safe and don’t give in to the fear of falling.
Enliven aims to make the senior years positive and empowered, an age of rich experiences and social connection. Consider a career in aged care, volunteer with us or donate to our work.
