Pinfold Lane Day Centre

What does it do?

Pinfold Day Centre provides a specialised day care service to meet the needs of people with Alzheimer's and Dementia. It also offers support to their carers and family members. It is important that they maintain their existing skills and enable the service user to stay at home. Pinfold Day Centre provides an access to social activities and interaction for them. The staff are experienced, highly qualified and have a great understanding and knowledge of Alzheimer's and Dementia.

Pinfold Lane Day Centre provides a monthly Carer Support Group that anyone can attend to gain advice, information and support as a carer.

The service is provided within a safe and stimulating environment giving service users an enjoyable day with therapeutic and social activities as well as giving carers a break from caring.
