We'll look after you

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

Day Care costs between £39 and £49, depending on an assessment of a person's needs and if they require additional support.  Wheelchair accessible transport may also be available.

Personal care

All our day centres have trained staff who are able to help clients use the toilet.  The William and Patricia Venton Centre in Northampton and Four Seasons in Kettering also have bathing facilities where we can help people with personal care.

How long?

A day at a centre runs from 10am to 3pm and will include tea, coffee and refreshments and a freshly prepared two-course lunch, as well as a variety of events and activities.

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 provide various events and talks, 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.
