Maintain your independence by connecting with others

As you age and situations change, the likelihood of you becoming isolated in your home will increase. In fact, according to recent studies, loneliness affects 1 in 5 older adults, so it is a common issue.

Loneliness can cause existing health conditions to worsen and can even cause new issues.

By interacting with friends or family, you gain the benefits of improvement to your mental and physical health, and in turn can maintain your independence if you wish.

North Shore CMA offers safe and inviting spaces for seniors to come together, enjoy one another’s company, and keep their mind and body active.

Activities can vary, but some examples include:


Arts & crafts


Local guest speakers




Off-site excursions


Physical exercises


  • Per session $10.00 with a nominal $5.00 if you require transport.
  • Annual Membership fee $25.00

Give your family member the chance to enjoy so much more

If your older family members are independent and supporting themselves, without the interaction with others this can often lead to loneliness – which can cause health complications down the line.

We understand that it’s not always possible to keep in touch with your family member due to other commitments, which is why our North Shore CMA centres exist as a hub for your family member to meet and interact with others, and have fun doing it.

Why should you refer someone to CMA?

Peace of mind that they have chances to stay social if or when you’re unavailable

Improvements to their physical and mental wellbeing by having companionship from others and regular stimulation and exercise

Balancing social interactions between family & friends

Providing support to participate in something outside of their own home
