Upgrade work for Day Respite Centre

05 June 2018

This year the main hall at the Maroochydore Community Centre celebrates 40 years. Officially opened on 28 October 1978, this was the first phase of the centre's development.

With the addition of the Day Respite Centre in August 1987, the centre has become a vital community hub providing a meeting place, social support, respite care and more than one million meals to the aged and elderly community on the central Sunshine Coast.

After all this hard work and wear and tear, the centre is receiving a well-deserved upgrade. The most urgent of these is replacement of the roof damaged over the storm season.  

This work will start on Monday 11 June. It’s extensive work that will require the closure of the hall and the relocation of services until the works are expected to be completed in mid-late September.

For customers

From 11 June, Suncare’s regular day respite and social support services will relocate to the Kawana Forest Meeting Place, Meridian Plains. Our services will continue as normal and there will be no changes to the existing schedules. Transport services will also operate as normal.

For hall hirers

Due to the nature of building works and for safety reasons the hall will not be available during the building works.

Updates on completion will be posted regularly on our website.

Thank you for your understanding during this necessary and important building work. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Maroochydore Day Respite Centre later in September.
