Ham Intensive Day Centre
What does it do?
Ham Intensive Day Care Centre is managed by Adult Social Care with support from NHS Richmond.
Ham Intensive Day Care Centre offers therapy, a chance to socialise and more support with personal or practical care than an ordinary Day Centre can, such as helping you go to the toilet and reminding you to take your medication.
It’s a light, homely, ground floor building with a large garden, providing a secure and supportive environment focused on sensory stimulation, comfort, safety and occupation.
One-to-one supervision is available with entertainment and activities that are tailored to individual and group user needs.
Morning or afternoon attendance is available at half the full day price.

Who it is for?
Where it is available?
What it costs:
We’ll help you to fill out a financial assessment form to see if you qualify for help. To get a rough idea of costs and how much you’ll pay, (Link to QH page, How much will I pay?) you can carry out a quick, confidential, financial self assessment online.
If we can make a contribution, we call this a Personal Budget. You can lookafter the money yourself and use it to arrange your own support, or you can ask the Council to hold the money and help you to find the support you need.
If you don't qualify for financial help from us and we’ve assessed your needs as eligible, you’re still welcome to use Ham Intensive Day Care Centre but you’ll have to pay the full cost of the service.
You could also arrange to employ someone directly, a Personal Assistant, to support you. RUILS, a local organisation, can help you to find someone. The Skills for Care toolkit provides useful information on employing your own personal assistant. You could also contact a private home care agency. Remember to take care to choose an agency that’s registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Call 03000 616161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We maintain a list of home care agencies in the borough.
