Supporting Independence

Treehouse is a supportive and safe social place for people with a palliative condition, dementia or any chronic illness that contributes to them feeling isolated or lonely.

The regular meeting place at the hospital is coordinated by friendly nurses who support people who live in the Macedon Ranges to get involved in meaningful activities that promote independence and wellbeing. The program also gives carers a day off.

Treehouse is having hugely positive impacts on happiness and quality of life, and the social outlet supports people to remain living in their own home for longer.

Treehouse Program

The program runs from 10am-3pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for people living with dementia of any stage (Early-Moderate-Advanced) and/or people who have other medical conditions affecting their quality of life.  It’s a free service, and lunch and morning and afternoon teas are provided.

For information or entry into the program contact Kathy Kirby on 5422 9987 or treehouse@kynetonhealth.org.au.
