Nepean Valley RSL Day Club
Welcome to the Nepean Valley RSL Day Club
ABOUT THE DAY CLUB
Day Clubs are a weekly social program for older people from both the ex-service and wider community. They offer social support and friendship to the elderly who are still living in the community but who are unable to attend more active programs.
The only membership criteria are:
Members must not require lifting
Members must be able to toilet, feed and medicate themselves
Members must not wander or disrupt others in the Club
Members must be able to physically and mentally cope with the Club activities (which will not be physically strenuous)
Day Clubs are entirely run by volunteers with the support of the Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) and the Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL) (NSW Branch). There are currently 72 Day Clubs throughout NSW.
The Nepean Valley RSL Day Club commenced in August 2013 and is supported by the City of Penrith RSL sub-Branch.
