As we age, social connections become even more vital for our overall wellbeing. However, maintaining a strong social network can become challenging due to retirement, mobility limitations or the loss of loved ones. This is where residential care facilities like ours at Bankstown City Aged Care play a crucial role. Residential care isn’t just about assisted living; it’s also about fostering a vibrant and supportive community.

Our Yallambee and Gillawarna Village staff organise regular activities and events that cater to a wide range of interests to support residents build strong and meaningful connections. From exercise to craft and quizzes, we provide varied opportunities for residents to socialise and discover shared passions.

Building social connections in residential care has a variety of positive effects including improved mental wellbeing, enhanced cognitive function and a stronger sense of security and support.
