West End CONNECT provides social activities & social support to Diversicare’s multicultural visitors and hosts over 100 participants a month.
Our respite visitors enjoy getting out and about visiting Brisbane’s various landmarks and taking time to connect with their ethnic groups or mix with other cultures.
At the activities centre itself, participants enjoy activities such as ethnic music, dance, yoga, Tai Chi, games and bingo or they celebrate Cultural days with food and traditional activities. Diversicare caters for Spanish, Dutch, German, Russian/Ukranian, Yugoslav, Samoan, Multicultural, Vietnamese, Polish, Croatian, Chinese and Lao groups.
Whatever age, disability, religion or ethnic background, the activities centre encourages and actively assists clients socially and increases their circle of friends. These activities also present an enormous opportunity for our clients to express their wants and likes, to keep connected with their culture and to be open to new experiences.
