Day care gives people with dementia the opportunity to spend a day with company, enjoying entertaining and engaging activities. It’s a great way to meet new people, have fun and spend some time away from home in a new environment.
Our Day Care services called Home from Home is offered in the Lodge (Social Day Care), we provide a variety of activities to fulfil every individual’s interests; however social day care does have its limitations hence we now provide Day Care in Chapel House & Plessington Court which enables us to provide Social and Personal Care during day care.
We provide a quality Day Care service for up to 10 people each day and day care packages are based upon individual needs. We feel that we can retain a homely atmosphere with a small bespoke service providing social day time events.
How can Dementia Day Care help me?
For some people, dementia can be an isolating condition that makes it difficult for them to stay in contact with friends, pursue their hobbies and meet new people. Day Care offers a great way to remain active, meet and make friends, and have fun. Mental stimulation and social interaction have great health benefits for people with dementia too, so accessing a specialist dementia Day Care service offers fantastic support for staying independent for longer too.Dementia Day Care can also help family or other carers, allowing them to take some time out of their caring routine knowing that their loved one is well supported and enjoying a great day out in a homely and protected environment.
When can I access Day Care?
Our day service is typically open from 9:00am until 6pm, however there is flexibility in what we offer in Chapel House & Plessington Court so times can be arranged to suit needs we offer a 7 day service. We try to ensure that we can offer flexibility to all who attend and their family commitments – because of this, we offer a range of sessions that run from as little as three hours right through to a full day session.
We have two Mini Buses, which can support members living locally who need transport to and from Home from Home. These Mini Buses will be driven by carers who work for Home from Home, meaning that you will always be picked up by a familiar face.
