Kaye - volunteer at Hyland House Day Respite Centre Testimonial

I mainly volunteer to give back to others. It also keeps me busy and learning new things. I certainly think I will be volunteering here for more years to come, or until I eventually become a member of Hyland House myself!

Lorraine - Home Care and Respite Testimonial

“I’m finding Hyland House very helpful. The ladies that are a part of the craft group are all so lovely. It’s nice to be around people and it’s a good environment to be in, rather than sitting in a silent house by yourself.”

Jan's story - Cooper House residential aged care community Testimonial

It’s the security - the security of knowing that if you’re not feeling well, you can talk to someone who knows what to do. And then they come back and ask you how you are. It’s comforting.
