Lilacs Day Centre

Day centre for people with dementia in Kidlington

What does it do?

We believe in providing a pleasant relaxed atmosphere where people with dementia can spend an enjoyable day amongst friends. We try to offer stimulating games and activities that help maintain residual skills, promote self-esteem and give a sense of well-being. Music and singing are generally very popular, and we have some excellent musicians who come and entertain. We sometimes go out to a garden centre or pub for lunch, which is appreciated by those who don’t get out much.

Who it is for?

Daybreak is a small specialist charity that operates three dementia day clubs in and around Oxford. We can accept people with any form of dementia including Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and other rare forms of this condition.

Where it is available?

Local service (Cherwell).

What it costs:

The subsidised daily charge is £11 a day, or £30 if you receive Self Directed Support payments. Red Cross provide an excellent transport service with specially adapted minibuses. Transport is charged at £5 a day for which you will be invoiced monthly by the County Council. Places are limited so preference is given to those who have no other means of getting to the club.
