Day care

Day care for older people in Cheshire East

What does it do?

Greater independence for people with dementia

Our day care services operate in five community locations each week and offer older people with dementia or mental frailty a warm and welcoming environment away from their own home.

By providing a stimulating range of activities, greater social interaction, a hot meal and transport to and from the venues if needed, we improve the feeling of independence and wellbeing for those who attend.

The familiarity of the setting and the skill and experience of our staff and volunteers means that new friendships flourish between people who are sharing the same life experiences. 

To strengthen further the bonds, the groups enjoy entertainment and special outings together. Where a family member or friend is looking after an older person, our day services offer a much-valued regular respite break.
