Colour sprinkled across every corner, games and activities to engage and delight, vast spaces for genuine social connections, a sensory room with all the latest technological inclusions. All this is now available to individuals with disability in and around the Camden region with the long-awaited opening of Afford Gregory Hills Day Program.
You could see the excitement of being in the new site on the faces of clients transitioning from Oran Park Day Program into their new space at Gregory Hills as soon as they walked through the door.
The bright, neon Afford styled logo catches your eye as soon as you enter through the front doors. It sets the scene for an array of things to do and see across the site.
Colourful oversized hand-shaped chairs welcome individuals to sit and relax while talking with friends. The foosball table, checkerboard floor space, massage chair, TV and more all offer a variety of options for stimulation and fun for everyone who attends the site.
An important addition for the Gregory Hills site is ample locker space for individuals to develop their independent living skills. The lockers give them a place to store their things for the day and be responsible for looking after them.
A fully equipped kitchen is ideal for budding MasterChefs who love to try new recipes and learn new culinary skills.
The sensory room has been specially designed by an Afford Occupational Therapist to ensure that sensory supports cater to the needs of clients of all abilities. Complete with a ball pit, sensory iWall and suitable lighting, clients can play games together, or take some time out for themselves.
The large spaces of the site mean that staff can include a checkerboard dance floor for everyone to showcase their groovy moves. The dining and lounge areas provide masses of space for safe social gatherings.
Our new Gregory Hills Day Program extends supports to locals in and around the Macarthur region to ensure every individual has choice and opportunity to get involved in things they love.
