What is Grow?
Grow holds weekly meetings of small groups for people who have experienced depression, anxiety and other mental or emotional distress, who come together to help each other deal with the challenges of life. It can be extraordinarily liberating and affirming to share problems with others who are encouraging and accepting, and facing similar issues!
Developing understanding, acceptance, confidence, control and love is at the heart of the Grow program. Meetings are supportive, non-threatening, positive and constructive and you don’t require a doctor’s referral to attend. Members are known in their group on a first name basis only and make a commitment to confidentiality. No fees are charged, however a small donation to meet necessary expenses is usual, though strictly voluntary.
Grow meetings are run by the members themselves, according to a well-structured format. During the meeting, members can share their problems, learn how to re-build their lives and report on their own progress.

Catch the Rainbow!
Rainbow Multicultural Aged Care Program is on a mission – a mission to fight the biggest issue facing older people today – loneliness. And according to the happy folk at Rainbow, they are winning! Providing high quality aged care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Rainbow has been caring for the community for over 20 years. Formed by the Polish Women’s Association of WA, a big part of Rainbow’s programs are designed to get older people moving, talking and laughing.
Every person’s birthday is celebrated. Every Christmas Santa visits and gives away presents.
People of European origin know that music and dancing is the best medicine for vitalising the mind and strengthening the body – which is why there’s an emphasis on singing and dancing every week. There’s also some exciting activities every year, such as balloon fights!
Of course, the wonderful Rainbow team will help you with personal care, jobs around the house and garden, and they will take you shopping and to doctors appointments. At Rainbow, they don’t say NO, they say LETS TALK! Plus they won’t tell you how much you have to pay either – they will negotiate with you. All you need to do is ask!

Regain Your Smile
Do you cover your mouth when you smile because of missing teeth? Regain your smile and your confidence at Apple Denture Centre. Dentures make it easier to speak and eat. Without dentures, over time your facial muscles sag, making you look older. Creating and fitting dentures is an art – there can be a big difference between good ones and bad ones.
Apple Denture Centre is owned and operated by husband and wife team Scott and Yiota Freeman. In operation for over 15 years, Scott and Yiota recently relocated to brand new premises in Alfred Cove. All dentures are handmade on-site in a state-of-the-art dental laboratory, using the highest grade materials. Apple Denture Centre is the only clinic in WA that manufactures Valplast flexible dentures onsite, considered to be one of the best products on the market.
