Colac Area Health is inviting the Colac community to a house warming to officially open Miller House.
Guests will be able to explore the newly renovated Miller Street site, hear about the exciting social support programs and share a home-style morning tea.
Colac Area Health’s new CEO, Fiona Brew, will be cutting the ribbon in celebration of this recently expanded service.
The merging of Colac’s two leading social support programs, South West Do Care and Colac Area Health’s Adult Day Activity Centre, will strengthen our local response to social isolation coming together in a vibrant, locally-based centre called Miller House. Miller House offers participants a range of choices to stay socially connected while maintaining skills and fitness for everyday living.
Buzzing with fun and energy, Miller House is home to an assortment of group activities, a gym, a day program, which includes respite, Aged Care information hub
and a one-on-one volunteer friendly visiting program.
Experienced, qualified staff are also there to support carers and assist with any queries regarding related support services. 
A team of dedicated, friendly volunteers also assist in running the activities. They visit older people in their homes or in Residential Aged Care, forming caring, joyful
friendships. Together, everyone has a laugh, makes new friends, share a meal, pick up new skills and have adventures.

Social Isolation and loneliness can effect people in different ways and impact physical and mental health. Social Isolation can increase stress levels, cause high
blood pressure and can increase risks of dementia, depression and social anxiety.
Research tells us that older people who live in a rural or remote locality are at greater risk of experiencing social isolation and loneliness. At the time of 2016
Census, it was identified that up to a third of people aged over 75 were living alone and were more likely to go out less often.
