Family of Friends

Over 200 people visit COA each week, some of them come in every day. We refer to our members as a "Family of Friends" and together we celebrate their birthdays, milestones, special events, and we  also commemorate their losses - just as a family should. 

Some people have reconnected with schoolmates and old friends in the centre, and some have made new friends for their older age right here. Together they experience the highs and lows of life as a senior and enjoy each others company.  

Transport on Monday / Wednesday / Sunday

Transport for larger group activities available to members who require it at $5 for a return trip from their home the centre.
