Any other relevant information for the Network

For older people, especially those isolated and/or living on their own, the Selwyn Centres provide an opportunity to socialise. For caregivers, especially those providing care to those with mild dementia, this is an opportunity for respite. (note: the Centres are not suitable for people with advanced dementia).
