What are Day Clubs?

Age UK Lancashire's Day Clubs provide an opportunity for those in later life to socialise, learn or relearn skills and take part in fun activities. The service is delivered in a group environment at your local centre equipped with appropriate facilities and resources in the community.

We offer a range of activities which build confidence, promote independence, maintain cognitive functioning and most importantly, are meaningful and engaging.

For Individuals

We provide a wide-ranging variety of enjoyable activities designed to encourage participation and stimulation. We may provide personal care and assistance at centres with appropriate facilities. All individuals are assessed to ensure that their needs are met in a person-centred way. To make this process as simple and straightforward as possible we liaise with social workers and other services involved in care provision on the individual’s behalf if required.

For Carers

Day Clubs provide much-needed respite to families caring for individuals and important social interaction and stimulation for older people who are isolated.

Activities and Food

At the centre’s we provide a nutritional, healthy two-course meal with refreshments and snacks, at home we can prepare a light meal or support you to plan and prepare meals independently.
