Informal day care in a host carer's home.

Two older ladiesOur daybreak initiative is designed to specifically meet the needs of older people living in rural locations for whom traditional day care is less appropriate. The groups are smaller and in a more intimate setting.

Daybreak care is provided by trained local people in their own homes who act as host carers offering a range of stimulating social activities which promote independence and encourage people to maintain everyday skills. In addition to providing intensive support to people who use the service, the daybreak scheme provides respite for carers.
The aim of the service is to provide:

• A flexible alternative to traditionally delivered day care
• Improved access to day/respite services in rural areas
• Greater choice for older people and carers
• Smaller group settings for older people who do not enjoy larger groups

Groups currently run in Barwell and Sapcote.
