DACS is supporting and enhancing physical and emotional wellbeing through our individually tailored home based Diversional Therapy program for clients across all our locations. Diversional therapy is a person-centered practice that recognises leisure and recreational experiences as the right of each individual. Diversional therapists work with people of all ages and abilities, to design and facilitate leisure and recreation programs that support, challenge, and enhance each individual’s psychological, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical wellbeing.

Our Diversional Therapy programs offer you and your loved one the opportunity to pursue various interests and hobbies that you may not have performed for a while, or to acquire new skills.

Recently one of our clients, a keen photographer, reignited his passion for photography, by re-learning this valuable skill, which brought much happiness to him and his family. The activity spurred him to walk around his property and snap beautiful photos of his garden, several of which he then printed and presented to his wife. He is now looking forward to rekindling yet another passion of his – playing a round of golf!

At DACS, we can structure a program to an individual’s interests and hobbies, to support both you and your family and friends. Providing flexible respite for example, enables a carer to take some time out for a coffee, a haircut, a game of tennis, or to simply go on a walk, which is equally as important as coordinating a programme for client’s in our care.

DACS has a men’s group starting in Goulburn, where locals will gather together each month to perform a variety of activities and to engage in some bloke time!
