Activity Day Clubs

Activity Day Clubs

Memory boxes are always popular!

 

The Activity Day Club service offers door-to-door accompanied transport to a choice of four weekly clubs in two locations serving much of South Gloucestershire.

 

A typical day contains opportunities for a variety of fun and activities such as singing and playing percussion instruments, quizzes, exercises to music, art & craft, bingo, Nintendo Wii games, knitting, memory boxes, entertainment and occasional outings as well as times of quieter conversation and one-to-one support.  A two course lunch and refreshments are also provided.

 

A range of activities are provided 

 

We will be happy to discuss you attending a 'taster session' so you can experience the service and meet other service users and staff team.  Half day packages can also be booked (subject to availability) and a reduced rate applies if no transport is required.

 

Positive outcomes for service users

  • Improved health and well-being
  • Reduced isolation
  • Increased motivation
  • Improved self-confidence

Carers can also recieve much-needed respite from their responsibilities.  (Ad hoc days can be booked subject to availability of spaces.)
