URGENT APPEAL – We need your help!
Older people are at the centre of the Coronavirus pandemic and Age UK Notts is doing everything we possibly can to support older people in crisis. Are you able to help us by making an emergency donation to enable us to continue our vital work?
Our Sybil Levin Centre has been closed since March 2020 because of the Covid pandemic. We will be reopening the centre as soon as it is safe to do so and are working with the local authorities to ensure this can happen in a safe way.
In the meantime, our centre users continued to be supported by our Community Dementia Support worker. Our Sybil Levin Centre attendees are very much in our thoughts and we want to do everything we can to help them during this challenging time.
We will keep government guidance under review and, when safe to so for our members and our staff, we will re-open the centre.
Would you or a loved one enjoy a dementia specialist day service?
Dementia is a condition that affects individuals and their families. Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire is here to help at our Sybil Levin Day Service.
Our Sybil Levin Day Service is like no other in and around Nottingham. It is a place where joy and laughter can be found as well as the specialist care that is needed to ensure a good quality of life. It’s a place that carers can trust to look after their loved one so they can have some personal time, enjoy their own hobbies and interests or just take a well-earned break. All our dedicated staff, together with our dedicated volunteers, really enjoy helping you enjoy life a little more
The day starts in a leisurely fashion – you are welcomed with a hot drink, biscuit, and a flick through today’s papers in our Sage Café. Once refreshed, there is a range of activities to choose from:
- Flower arranging
- Arts and Crafts
- Reminiscence activities
Whilst we encourage people to join in with activities, there is no pressure. If members want some quiet time to sit and read, do some artwork or just reflect then there is plenty of space to do that. Our staff and volunteers are always on hand to help.
Our supervised games are all about encouraging people to move about, to remain active and to socialise with others. Everyone is able to participate as staff and volunteers are on hand to provide assistance where required.
We’ve recently added Maintenance Cognitive and Stimulation Therapy (MCST) to our portfolio of activities. This specialist service is a really valuable way of helping people to maintain their creative thinking abilities as long as possible in a fun and engaging way.
With regular attendance and familiarity of setting, Sybil Levin offers significant emotional, mental and social benefits to you or your loved ones.
Home cooked meals
The service provides a home cooked meal each day, which takes into account the individual's dietary needs and preferences
