Day Care

What does it do?

Day care is a popular service offered to people who need some help with personal or practical care and are unable to get out and about by themselves.
Day care is usually available in a resource centre, community building or a residential home and offers more support than an ordinary day centre can provide.
Professional caring staff can support you with personal care, such as going to the toilet, reminding you to take medication or help with washing or bathing. You will also have a hot meal and drinks during the day and a chance to socialise and to take part in a number of leisure and craft activities.

Who it is for?

People over the age of 18 who live in Bury and who need help due to physical or learning disabilities, sight or hearing loss, frailty or illness. Support is also available for older people with mental health issues.

Where it is available?

Local service (Bury).

What it costs:

There will be some cost but the actual amount you pay will depend on how often you use day care.
