We cannot cater for incontinence issues, high level dementia (low level is acceptable), or high levels of mental health issues. Wheelchair users both transferrable and non-transferrable are accepted. Disabled facilities are available on site.
The purpose of the day care facilities are to meet the assessed needs of individuals for social care, support, supervision or rehabilitation by reason of low level functional impairment, cognitive impairment, learning disability, age and low level frailty, and / or for people with family life circumstances or issues.
Transport A limited service close to the vicinity of the Southville Community Centre is available. The reason for this is the travelling time involved in transporting members to the Day Centre. Service users who live outside of this vicinity may still attend as long as they are a resident of London Borough of Hounslow but they will need to organise their own transport. Transport is included in the cost of attendance for those within the catchment area of the minibus. Please contact us for more details.
Lunch is provided and is a hot two course hot meal cooked on the premises at the Southville Community Centre. The menus are varied and rotate each four week period. Special diets within reason can also be catered for. The cost of lunch is included in the cost of attendance.

Day Trips take place to local garden centres and other locations at the choice of the members. A small charge is made for the mini bus and any admission fees applicable would also be payable by the service user. Age UK Hounslow host extensive events from the main centre Southville Community Centre in Feltham, to which the Day Service members are often invited.
