The club provides day care and company for frail older people living in Woburn Sands and the surrounding villages.
What does the club offer?
We encourage people to enjoy social contact and to join in activities which are tailored to their needs and abilities in a caring, safe environment. We also provide morning refreshments and a freshly cooked lunch.
Who is it for?
The club is particularly suited to the needs of older people who are mentally frail. As well as providing a caring safe environment for its members it also gives support and relief to carers and relatives. Club members are encouraged to join in group conversations about topics that are of interest to them. We sit in the comfortable sitting room at the village hall in small groups. This way people do not feel intimidated or institutionalised. We play boards games and chat and no-one is left out.

- The club is held on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am to 3pm
