For more than 30 years Jubilee Community Care has provided professional and respected care to the elderly in their homes. And that is set to continue for many years to come. But at Jubilee we recognise that times, as Bob Dylan says, the times they are a-changin’! And so we have introduced a suite of online services to complement the care Jubilee’s wonderful support workers offer in-person.
Jubilee has partnered with respected local businesses to bring you engaging educational services based around topics of interest to seniors. All of the services are designed to keep you active and healthy, and to improve your general sense of wellbeing. They are also a great way to stay connected in your community with the chance to grow new friendships.
All you need to take part is a computer, tablet or smartphone. Once you have registered for a service you will be emailed all of the details you need to take part in the online sessions. These services are open to both Jubilee Community Care clients as well as seniors in the community.
The number and variety of online services is expected to grow in the coming months so keep an eye out for new offerings.
With Brisbane author and arts therapist Fiona Ware: The online workshops encourage participants to unleash their creativity and start writing about their lives – a powerful tool to acknowledge who we are, where we have come from and what we’ve learnt along the way. There will be time at the end of each session to discuss the day’s content and build new friendships if you wish to stay online.
A course for new participants will run online each Wednesday from April 7 to May 26, 2021.
Existing participants can continue in a second course on Mondays from April 12 to June 14, 2021 (excluding public holidays).

Each session involves a range of aerobic and resistance training, coordination and flexibility exercises, and balance training. There will be time at the end of each class to discuss the day’s content and build new friendships if you wish to stay online.
