The Adult Day Activity and Support Service (ADASS) is a Home and Community Care (HACC) funded service, which aims to enhance the lives of aged, frail and disabled residents in our community by providing social interaction and access to a large range of services.
It is a great way of making new friends, keeping active and enjoying the company of others in a relaxed, informal and friendly environment.
