For those with memory loss or dementia we provide a specialist day care service providing meaningful and person centred activties.
This service is for people with dementia or memory loss. If this is not applicable, please visit here.
Age UK Plymouth provides day care for older people who need a little extra support due to age related health conditions. Our dementia day centre provides care for people with memory loss, cognitive issues and all stages of dementia. We understand that a diagnosis of any illness can be difficult for both the person and their carers therefore we offer free introduction and taster sessions. People can come along to meet with the staff and find out a little bit more about the type of support that is available to them which can help to ease transition into the service.
Our centres provide a person centred approach so that our guests enjoy quality time with us and their carers know that their loved ones are being looked after well and engaged with. Our friendly team of experienced staff adapt to meet the needs of each client so there's always something different happening to provide stimulation and encourage engagement into the varied activities on offer each day where people can enjoy social interaction and good company.

"A sincere thanks for all you have done for my wife and myself. You have a dedicated team who are completely devoted to those they serve. There is a 'warmth' care friendliness as soon as you enter the building. I have been constantly impressed by the variety of activities which cater for the sensitive and the 'outgoing'. My wife has never been a 'sporty', competitive person and I was amazed to see the joy on her face, catching and throwing a ball. I have always felt relaxed and welcomed; my wife and I will miss you all."
