Banksia Services Carrum Downs encourages wellbeing and social connections among older people and people with a disability and gives their carers a break. It is a place of companionship and choice for members as they pursue lifelong interests and take up new ones. Our varied program of stimulating activities includes art and music therapy, chess and other board games, cooking lessons and classes using computer tablets and the internet. Among the outdoor pursuits in our peaceful country setting are gardening on raised garden beds and lawn bowls.
