Day care

What does it do?

Day care is usually available in day centres. They are available to help people maintain their independence by assisting them in caring for themselves. They assist in maintaining links within the community and avoid isolation. It can also provide carers with the opportunity to have some time and space for themselves.

Some centres specialise in assisting people with specific needs such as, for example, physically disability or dementia. Day care is usually available as a larger package of support and is subject to an eligibility criteria and an assessment of need. Day care may be available to you if you have a disability due to physical or mental frailty or have other care needs.
