Would you or a loved one enjoy a dementia specialist day service?

Dementia is a condition that affects individuals and their families. Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire is here to help at our Sybil Levin Day Service.

Our Sybil Levin Day Service is like no other in and around Nottingham. It is a place where joy and laughter can be found as well as the specialist care that is needed to ensure a good quality of life. It’s a place that carers can trust to look after their loved one so they can have some personal time, enjoy their own hobbies and interests or just take a well-earned break.

The day starts in a leisurely fashion – you are welcomed with a hot drink, biscuit, and a flick through today’s papers in our Sage Café. Once refreshed, there is a range of activities to choose from:

  • Flower arranging
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Exercise Classes
  • Quizzes
  • Reminiscence activities

Whilst we encourage people to join in with activities, there is no pressure. If members want some quiet time to sit and read, do some artwork or just reflect then there is plenty of space to do that. Our staff and volunteers are always on hand to help.

Our Living Room Rempod is a recent and very exciting addition to our range of cognitive stimulation tools – it’s a lovingly recreated 1950’s living room where friends can sit, play a game of cards or dominoes and enjoy a sing-song – sometimes all three! The décor stimulates deep childhood memories and encourages conversation but remains a relaxing place to be.

Our supervised games are all about encouraging people to move about, to remain active and to socialise with others. Everyone is able to participate as staff and volunteers are on hand to provide assistance where required.

The service provides a home cooked meal each day which takes into account the individual’s dietary needs and preferences.
