We offer a support service for people living with dementia and memory problems. We provide a high level of support and a wide range of activities for service users, as well as providing all important respite for carers.
THIS SERVICE IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Our service (also known as the New Horizons Club) operates from a specially adapted day centre in the heart of Macclesfield. Open between 9.30am and 4.00pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays), three small groups will run each day, offering a wide range of activities that combine mental, physical and social stimulation, including arts & craft, reminiscence, quizzes, baking falls prevention, music therapy, group interaction, word games and trips out.
Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, along with a two course hot meal at lunchtime. Transport can be arranged by either minibus or with a volunteer driver.
As a local charity focusing on the needs of older people, we have many years’ experience of providing interesting, stimulating and appropriate activities for people living with dementia. This new service will build on that experience, using a combination of paid staff and volunteers, to ensure those we are supporting and their carers receive an excellent level of service. Our support service is suitable for anyone with memory problems. We do not offer any assistance with personal care but can offer support to ensure that everyone who does attend has a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

What does the service cost?
The cost of the service is £53 per day. Short term respite care, bookable one week in advance in advance (subject to assessment) costs £59. We do not make a profit on this service, with any surplus generated being used to fund the charity's other services.
