Enjoyable opportunities for local people at welcoming, safe and easily accessible premises across Warwickshire

Over the last seven years, Age UK Coventry and Warwickshire have provided Dementia Day Opportunities in venues across Warwickshire. We provide a range of dementia support services for individuals with dementia and their carers with centres in:

· North Warwickshire

· Nuneaton and Bedworth

· Rugby

· South Warwickshire

Tailored support provided by caring, experienced and trained staff.

We provide a sociable atmosphere where engaging, fun activities are tailored to members; periods of quiet time are built in to meet the needs and preferences of each person. These include:

· Arts and Crafts

· Interesting and Interactive Activities and Stimulation

· Socialising and Conversation

· Games

· Trips and Excursions

Meals and refreshments are provided.

We have a team of committed, experienced staff that are professionally trained and benefit from regular development opportunities and skills updates.

Choice and Independence

We aim to encourage choice, independence, and improvement in quality of life. At our centres we provide a safe, caring, and secure environment – a “home from home” with the added opportunity to form new friendships and enjoy the company of local people from different backgrounds, and with varied skills and interests.

COVID

AUKCW works within COVID-19 guidelines, staff wear PPE and work to ensure the centres maintain high infection control standards. We continually review protocols and guidance to maintain the highest standard of service.

We are accepting new referrals. Every new referral is risk and needs assessed to ensure we are able to support the individual’s needs in the best possible way.
