Our popular Day Centre is a chargeable service which currently runs on Mondays and Thursdays in the Johnson Hall at the Greenford Community Centre. It aims to improve the quality of life for older people by helping them to be as independent as they can be and to be with other people – we work in partnership with Ealing Community Transport (ECT) to bring people to the centre. By bringing a group of people together for social activities enhances their confidence, independence and helps them combat loneliness and isolation.
Our warm and welcoming Day Centre provide service users with both practical assistance and a chance to socialise, with the support from qualified staff and volunteers – our service users enjoy a wide variety of activities which promotes health & wellbeing including:
- gentle exercises such as chair-yoga
- arts and crafts, knitting
- board games, puzzles, games
- birthday celebrations
- and much more...
A hot meal at lunch time is provided as well as tea, coffee and light snacks during the day.
Before you begin, our Day Centre Manager will visit you at home to discuss what we provide so that you can decide if this is the right service for you. We will help to organise your transport to and from the centre and discuss any concerns that you may have.
