About

Capital Region Community Services offers some great ways for older people to see something new and form friendships.  Every month, the BCS Community Bus service offers two excursions to visit local attractions or enjoy lunch together.  In addition, BCS also offers four trips per year where seniors can travel to interesting destinations around NSW.

The BCS Community Bus recently visited the National Museum of Australia and the Royal Canberra Show.  In 2016, BCS out of town bus trips included a journey to the Sydney Opera House to see My Fair Lady and a three day trip to Dubbo. BCS volunteer, Caroline White wrote about the Dubbo trip which included the Western Plains Zoo and the Old Dubbo Goal: “I particularly, loved the otters – whom we watched being fed … Dubbo Jail, which is no longer in use, was fascinating and oftentimes quite spooky, but we all had a good laugh!”

One of the biggest challenges faced by people over 65 is social isolation.  Loneliness is a well-documented health risk and sometimes getting out of the house and having a good time can be the best medicine.
