Staying Connected

Autumn is always a time of year in Melbourne I look forward to…

We get some of the nicest weather of the year,
the trees look amazing but, most importantly,
the footy is back!

It’s also a very exciting time here at BASScare.
We’re looking forward to our first music concert
for the year (and in over a year), when we
welcome Bush Gothic as part of Melbourne
Recital Centre’s ‘Music Always’ program.
Day trip outings will resume on a Friday,
which I know many of you have been keenly
waiting for. Then there is a new music program
with Maranoa House as well as the return of
Wednesday afternoon movies. Add that to all
the regular exercise programs, lunches, arts and
craft, brain games and there has never been
a better time to return to the Canterbury and
Marwal Centres, or drop in for the first time and
say hello
