Imperial Wharf Resource Centre

What does it do?

Imperial Wharf Resource Centre aims to support older people to remain in their own homes. The centre provides a safe environment for service users to socialise, enjoy a nutritious meal and take part in a range of activities.

The centre offers day time respite for carers and is open seven days a week. Our staff are professionally trained to Level 3 NVQ in Social Care and are committed to providing high standards of care for all service users.

We offer a comprehensive programme of daily activities to meet the needs of our clients. The programme is devised through consultation with our clients and is reviewed every eight weeks.

Our activities include:

  • Agewell classes and therapeutic exercise groups
  • Outings to places of interest e.g. the seaside, public gardens, shows and restaurants 
  • Arts and crafts
  • Sewing 
  • Slideshows
  • Quizzes 
  • Topical discussions
  • Reminiscence sessions 
  • Reflexology 
  • Nailcare 
  • Hairdressing

We also work with group facilitators with the aim of our clients enhancing their key skills such as:

  • Communication
  • Confidence 
  • Self advocacy

This is carried out through practical sessions such as cooking and horticulture.

The day centre provides a range of freshly prepared hot and cold meals each day on site and at a subsidised cost. Lunch options include:

  • Caribbean 
  • Diabetic 
  • Halal 
  • Kosher

What to expect then:

Before an application is made to the day centre, a social work assessment needs to be completed. This is to make sure that we provide the right support to the people who need it most. Once an application has been received a staff member of the day centre will contact you to arrange a home visit to discuss your needs and give you more information about the services offered at the day centre.

This person will become your keyworker if you proceed with your application. The keyworker will advocate on your behalf and develop a plan of care with you to meet your needs at the day centre.

This may involve liaising with your carer, social worker, family and other professionals such as doctors and district nurses. We will review your care plan with you.
