What is Day Care?

Age UK Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly operates three Day Care Centres located at Falmouth, Newquay and St Austell. We also run Day Services throughout Truro & the surrounding areas.

Our Centres are ideal for those older people who wish to maintain an independent lifestyle staying in their own homes, but also benefit from regular visits to the Day Centre.
A wide selection of activities are currently available at our Day Centres, these include;

  • Outings & shopping trips
  • Arts & crafts
  • Lunches & afternoon teas
  • iTea & Biscuits (Computing & Internet)
  • Exercise sessions
  • Games & entertainment
  • Reflexology
  • Sensory classes
  • Chi Kung
  • Memory Cafes
