Day Opportunities in Plymouth

What does it do?

We have two centres across the City of Plymouth that provide caring services and opportunities to meet new friends, have fun and lunch. Both centres are open five days a week, excluding bank holidays. Each venue provides a wide range of high quality day opportunities, freshly cooked homemade meals in a friendly and supportive environment. Both centres are equipped with reasonably priced hairdressing facilities, a visiting chiropody service and other activities such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Bingo, Bridge, Reading Groups, Arts and Crafts.

Our Dementia Services centre based at the William and Patricia Venton Centre in Mount Gould caters for people with different stages of dementia. Our Early Stage Dementia service is available to people over 50 and offers an integrated approach to supporting people with early stage dementia.

All our staff are trained and have many years of experience caring for older people.
