What we do...
The Health and Wellbeing Centre provides Day Care in a friendly and stimulating environment for people who need a little help with daily tasks as well as those with more complex needs. We also offer support for those with dementia and older people’s health conditions.
Day Care also gives family or friends a well-earned break. Most of our team have been here for ten years or more and we’re very proud of the centres friendly atmosphere.
Listening to people is one of the most important things we do, so that we can truly get to know them and we make sure they get the most out of every day.
Our busy activities programme includes gentle exercise, art and crafts, internet sessions, sporting activities to local history reminiscence.
We focus on supporting people to retain their existing skills, and to gain new ones and we believe that you are never too old to enjoy something new or different.
Staff ensure that every person can get involved in something they enjoy, and by providing a great range of activities and delivering truly person-centered support, our day care services promote the health, happiness, wellbeing and independence of people we support.
As well as activities we provide a hot midday meal and refreshments throughout the day.
