Creating communities where older people thrive, not just survive.

Enliven Central’s vision is creating elder-centred communities where older people have companionship, choice and independence, meaningful activity and purpose in their lives. We don’t ever want elders in our community to feel lonely, helpless or bored. If you share this vision, there are many ways for you to get involved.

Leave a gift in your Will

By leaving a gift in your Will you can support elders in your community or at a specific Enliven home.
