Day Centres

Glenview runs two day centres with all campuses in Glenorchy,

just a stones throw from our residential building

Banksia House

Banksia day centre is situated in a lovely old home opposite Glenview in Windsor St, Glenorchy. Here we offer a wide range of social and recreational support to those in need of a little extra help due to frailty or disability, we also cater to younger people with physical disability. At Banksia we can help you to enjoy a full and active life where no two days are ever the same!

Night Owls

Banksia Night Owls organizes an evening program every Thursday. Clients choose a venue for weekly outings such as dining out for a meal, a concert, BBQs or even a holiday to the mainland! Night Owl clients are picked up from their homes from around 4.30pm and escorted home around 10.00pm.

Bisdee House

Bisdee House is a social and relaxed respite centre for the over 65's providing flexible programs and activities for seniors to enjoy. Our role is primarily to provide meaningful and fun activities for our guests and respite care when it is needed. It's a place to meet new people or to catch up with friends in a relaxed and friendly environment, while carers and family members can enjoy some respite knowing that, as part of the Glenview community, all of our guests needs are well looked after. Our guests can come to us for a quick stay for a few hours, a longer whole day stay, or even overnight respite for both planned and unexpected events.

 

Our guests have access to all programs and facilities including:

All meals including morning and afternoon tea

Organised activities, adventures, classes and workshops

Lounge and activity rooms

Library and pool room

Kitchens

Large assist bathrooms and disability toilets

Friendly, caring and qualified staff to assist with any requirements

The Mens Shed 

Mens Shed

Sorry Ladies this is for men only. At Bisdee House we have our very own Men's Shed. It's a fully functioning workshop with new tools and equipment being added all the time. It's a place where all men are welcome, from serious woodworkers to absolute novices. On any given day you will find our men busily engaged in projects like mould making, painting, scroll saw work, toy making, building trains and doll houses, furniture restoration along with the occasional French polishing. In fact, if you can dream it, our men can build it, or at least have fun trying! Of course in between all the construction, there is always time for a cup of tea and a chat, but we won't let the ladies know about that!
