Spend the day with us.

We set the charges for day care at a reasonable level which contributes towards our costs.

  • Accessible transport adds £13 per day for return journey

We are now able to offer clients at The William and Patricia Venton Centre help to shower for £14 and a hair wash for £7.  Please give us a bit of notice so that we can ensure staff are available.

Method of payment

Clients can pay by monthly direct debit or by monthly invoice which we can post to you.  Some clients choose to pay by cheque, either in person on the day or by post.  We will help you set up the method of payment that is most appropriate for your circumstances.

Personal care

The amount we charge will depend on an assessment of a person's needs.  All our day centres have trained staff who are able to help clients use the toilet.  The William and Patricia Venton Centre in Northampton has facilities where client can have a shower.  We charge £14 for this service.

Toenail cutting at our day centres

We are now able to trim your toenails whilst you are at the day centre for £24.

How long?

A day at a centre normally runs from 10am to 3pm.  The cost includes tea, coffee and refreshments and a freshly prepared two-course lunch. Our managers and their team organise a range of activities during the day including exercise, crafts, reminiscence groups, games, bingo and quizzes.  Throughout the year we also arrange occasional outings and visits from local entertainers.

Our trained staff offer a warm welcome, a listening ear and care appropriate to your needs.  With our support people keep their independence and remain active for longer, continuing to feel a valued member of their community and able to make the most of life. 

The centres are a safe and enjoyable way for older people to meet new friends and take part in activities that suit them.  We provide a purposely calm environment for people who may have complex needs, including physical impairment or dementia.

Please call 01604 611200 to find out more.
