Embracing New Experiences: Have A Go Day 2023

20231123 Care Finder at Have a Go Day 01

Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone and try something new?

The "Have A Go Day" event, organised annually by the Seniors Recreation Council WA at Burswood Park, highlights the WA Seniors Week celebrations. It all started in 1992, and this year marks its 31st anniversary. The event, free for community members aged 50 and above, annually attracts over 15,000 people and more than 200 organisations. "Have A Go Day" embraces the essence of Seniors Week, not only celebrating and acknowledging the contributions of seniors to the WA community but also encouraging them to stay active and open to learning and trying new things.

Chung Wah Community Care (Chung Wah CC) proudly supports WA Seniors Week. On November 15th, we participated in "Have A Go Day", where our seniors confidently paraded around the field, led by a police band. Additionally, Chung Wah CC set up a booth at the venue to promote services offered by the "care finder" program.

The "care finder program”, funded by the Australian Government's Primary Health Network Program, aims to assist seniors needing care to access aged care services. Our care finder team is here to guide you through understanding, applying for, and choosing suitable aged care services. Suppose you are already receiving aged care services. In that case, we can also help you find and transition to a new provider that better suits your needs.
