We offer a day club for people living with dementia and memory problems. We provide a high level of support and a wide range of activities for those attending, as well as providing all important respite for carers.
Our New Horizons Club operates from our specially adapted day centre in the heart of Macclesfield. Open between 10.30am and 2.30pm, Monday to Wednesday* (excluding bank holidays), up to 6 older people will attend each day, undertaking 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.
* in due course we hope to open Monday to Friday but until we can build up the numbers of those attending, we will just begin with 3 day opening.
Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, along with a light meal at lunchtime.
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 service builds 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.

Emergency respite care
We know that things don't always go to plan. If service users need an additional day once in a while, we can take bookings for respite places one week in advance.
What does the service cost?
The cost of the service will be £45 per day. Short term respite care, bookable one week in advance in advance (subject to assessment) costs £50. We do not make a profit on this service, any surplus generated is used to fund the charity's other services.
Not sure if you can afford our Dementia Day Support Service?
You can call our free Information and Advice service to check if there are any benefits that you may be able to claim that will help cover the cost of the service.
