Stay Connected With Your Community!

Stay connected with your community! What’s life without fun, learning and food? Social, physical, and creative pursuits are good for body and soul and NovaCare has many to keep life interesting. You can choose one on one social support where we can take you out in private vehicles for perhaps a coffee, accompany you to Saturday morning sport with the grandkids, go to church or bowls, or attend a function or special event. And don’t forget, you are always welcome at Milpara!

Sing Out Loud Together

Delivered in partnership with the Arts Health Institute, this wonderful intergenerational program is linked to the Stage 3 National School Curriculum for literacy; creative arts; personal development, health and physical education; and history. Year 6 students come together with their older buddies for 8 weeks to sing and share stories under the guidance of a talented Maestro. Our Buddies love connecting with children and music while the children learn meaningful lessons through the wisdom and stories of the past. Singing, talking and reading isn’t just a way of learning, it stimulates memory, forges connection and brings happiness.

Cycling Without Age

The right to wind in your hair. NovaCare initiated the Hunter region chapter for this international movement that helps older people get back on their bicycles and experience the joy of cycling again. It was created in Denmark with a dream of “of creating a world together, in which the access to active citizenship creates happiness among our fellow elderly citizens by providing them with an opportunity to remain an active part of society and the local community.”Now in countries throughout the world, volunteer pilots take older people for bike rides in cleverly designed trishaws. We get people outside to enjoy the fresh air and their community around them.

Personal Goals & Projects

NovaCare is here to support individuals to live their way. Perhaps you don’t want to be in a group, sometimes projects are more personal. It could be painting, writing your memoirs or even having your poetry published. We discovered Brenda Bryant’s beautiful poetry skills when she read a poem about her little Buddy at Sing Out Loud Together. With over 4,000 poems on her blog, we thought it was time for a book.
