What does it do?

Dementia Day Care and Respite Centre.

" To provide respite for carers and support and stimulation for people living with Dementia"

Age concern Liverpool and Sefton have over 90 years experience of working with people over 50.

You can entrust the safety and care of the person you love to us from 8am until 6pm week days. We provide tasty meals and snacks which are nutritionally balanced and all made on site by our chef in our 5 star rated hygiene kitchen.

All our activites are aimed at helping to slow down the progression of dementia and some of these include
> Gardening on our raised beds.
> Singing and Dancing
> reminiscence work
> stories
> painting and other arts and crafts
> chair based exercises
> drama
> mindfulness and relaxation
> outings
> socialising and chatting to others
> friendships
> Together with Yoga - which was featured on the BBC and Radio - bringing babies and those with Dementia together.
