What is the Elizabeth Activity and Care Centre?
Age UK Barnsley are delighted to be launching the Elizabeth Activity and Care Centre at 36A Queens Road.
The Elizabeth Centre is named after the late Queen Elizabeth II and is our commemoration to a remarkable person and her seven decades of service to our country.
Why choose the Elizabeth Activity and Care Centre?
The Elizabeth Centre provides a safe, friendly and stimulating environment for older people in need of a little extra support.
We also provide respite provision for family and carers who can have a break from their caring role, knowing that their loved ones are having a safe, enjoyable experience in the care of a dedicated, trained and experienced staff team who offer a warm welcome to all who come along to the centre.
We offer specialist support for older people living with health conditions, mobility problems, those who are socially isolated and for people living with dementia.
What do we do?
Our activities programme provides a person centred approach to a variety of activities, we focus on supporting people to retain their existing skills and offer opportunities to gain new ones. Our team ensure that every person can get involved in something they enjoy, promoting the wellbeing and independence of those we support
Activities include gentle exercise, art and crafts, musical and sporting opportunities, local and life history reminiscence and so much more besides!
Our team are proud of the centre's friendly atmosphere and engaging activity programme.
A delicious two-course hot meal and refreshments are served throughout the day.
Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy
We also provide a Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy Programme (MCST), which is an evidence based treatment to improve cognition, independence and wellbeing for people living with dementia. Group members participate in stimulating and meaningful activities proven to help maintain memory and mental function. MCST sessions will run on Thursdays at the Elizabeth Centre.
