Day Opportunities

Day services for older people in Hull

What does it do?

Day Opportunities works on the basis that there are older members of each community who, for various reasons, now find themselves less able to get out unaccompanied but still have the desire to enjoy a day out, share a cooked lunch and join in the activities of the centre which provides the opportunity to spend quality time with others.

Day Opportunities requirement

Our Day Opportunities make an important contribution to community awareness by acting as a preventative measure for problems caused by lack of social contact and stimuli. The centre allows older people to continue to lead an independent life by allowing members choice, control, independence and dignity through various activities and events provided. Members have many opportunities to contribute to the life of the day centre, through activities that encourage self-esteem and self-fulfilment.

The Day centre provides support and friendship for isolated, housebound older people.
It also provides meals and refreshments, talks, activities such as crafts, games and bingo, gentle exercise, outings in the summer and, most importantly, social companionship.   We also provide transport to and from the centre.
An assessment is needed as we don't have provisions for personal care.
