Group rolls out program to improve quality of life

ON the move to ensure seniors, those with disabilities and their carers, culturally diverse groups and Indigenous residents have plenty to look forward to, Community Wheels has an impressive social program on offer in early 2020.

A not-for-profit business serving the Parramatta and Cumberland areas for 30 years, it features a subsidised door-to-door transport service allowing clients to get to their destinations, whether that be shopping trips, medical appointments, daycare centres or friends’ homes.
Community Wheels has also created the social event program to areas outside of the LGA, to improve the quality of seniors’ lives and prevent feelings of isolation.
Some of the destinations in January and February include trips to the Three Sisters at Katoomba, the Lindt Chocolate Factory and the Marsden Brewhouse at Marsden Park, the Nuclear Science outlet at Lucas Heights, the Bradman Museum at Bowral, Tobruk Sheep Station, the Powerhouse Discovery Centre at Castle Hill, boat cruises, beach picnics and a variety of club luncheon venues – all at affordable, discounted rates.
Its business development co-ordinator Angela Ostojic-Lopatic said: “We pride ourselves on being safe and accessible and we are also offering free computer classes and a coffee club early next year.
“We would love more members of the community to get on board and enjoy our services,” he said.
