Seniors

Kurri Kurri Community Services organises and hosts a number of regular events for older members of the community. Most of these occur on a weekly basis and, in some instances community buses are available to transport you to and form the event. We are always looking to provide new and interesting experiences for seniors so if you have an idea for a new activity that we do not currently offer, please let us know. The current schedule of events is listed below. All events are weekly and some are subject to change, depending on numbers.

Mystery Bus Tour

One Thursday every month, KKCS will organise a mystery tour. We will visit a local landmark or recreational facility for a day out with a difference.

Carer’s Friendship Network (CFN)

The CFN is a group of people who are, or have been carer to a person with dementia and choose to enjoy the support of a Carers’ group. The CFN meets monthly on a Wednesday and alternates between on-site meetings (often with a guest speaker – held from 10am-12pm) and day outings.

The CFN members pay for their own meals while out and there is also a nominal fee for the bus. Members meet at Kurri Kurri Community Services and are returned to the centre at the end of the outing. A calendar of dates will be posted out in January each year to all participants who are on our list.
