Diversional therapy at HillView Care

At HillView we place a strong emphasis on providing high quality diversional therapy, conducted by our friendly and supportive team of diversional therapists and carers. Our diversional therapists are specially trained to develop and implement all types of recreation and leisure activities for seniors. They have all the knowledge and experience to plan and host a variety of activities to engage and connect with residents through a variety of group activities.

We offer outings in the community (bus trips), as well as activities on-site for those who are more reluctant to, or aren’t able to get out and about. Some of our regular activities at HillView include bingo, bocce, poetry, social morning teas, happy hour, BBQ nights, ice-cream extravaganzas, exercise, music and much more!
