Positive Ageing Program 

The Positive Ageing program provides activities and events for members of the community aged 55+. It started over ten years ago with a vision of providing inclusive activities for seniors who were not eligible for Government funded services, were socially isolated and felt more comfortable in a safe and supportive environment. 


In late 2013, the Affinity Club was created as the focused ‘activity’ side of the Positive Ageing program. It encouraged seniors to sign up for a membership to receive discounted access to many different activities. In 2024, it is still an important part of the Positive Ageing program and there have been changes to some of the activities provided, with new experiences introduced to meet the changing needs of seniors.

Nedlands Community Care Closure

The City of Nedlands made the difficult decision to cease Nedlands Community Care services on December 31 2023 due to declining client referrals, an increasingly competitive aged care environment and anticipated future sector reform.

Nedlands Community Care (NCC) has been your local trusted home support provider for more than 35 years. Funded by the Commonwealth Government Home Support Program (CHSP) and the City of Nedlands, NCC supported services needed to allow senior residents in the community to continue living safely in their own homes. 

The Commonwealth Home Support Program allowed NCC to provide both in-home support activities and group social support services through the City’s Waratah Social Club.

Seniors seeking funded home support services, including Commonwealth Home Support Programme services, can contact My Aged Care for assistance with finding a provider by going to the My Aged Care website at www.myagedcare.gov.au or phoning the My Aged Care Contact Centre on 1800 200 422.
