Keeping safe, staying social with dementia

The Enliven Harakeke Club provides day activity programmes for older people with memory loss and cognitive impairment (Dementia).

Housed in our purpose-built Dementia facilities, our programmes are designed to offer interesting, age- and ability-appropriate activities in a safe, inviting environment. Our aim is to help those with Dementia, remain socially active and engaged while their carers take some time out.

Who is this for?

Older people (65+) who have moderate to advanced levels of Dementia and who are:

  • Becoming, or at risk of becoming, socially isolated
  • Carers living in the community – all Enliven day activity programmes (Harakeke Club, Totara Club, Home Share) are designed to give carers some time out from the 24/7 nature of caring for a loved one with Dementia.

How the Harakeke Club can help:

At Harakeke Club, we provide:

  • A safe, relaxed, welcoming environment
  • Purpose-built, stand alone dementia facilities
  • Professionally qualified staff
  • A support network of trained volunteers
  • Transport to and from Harakeke Club venues where available
  • Programmes run weekdays
  • All meals – morning and afternoon teas and lunch

Costs and referrals:

Most Harakeke Club members receive full funding via their local Health Board.
