Day Services

What does it do?

The length of time people receive day services for will depend on their assessed needs. Our services are designed to:

  • Help people to maintain their independence by assisting them in caring for themselves and carrying out tasks of daily living.
  • Helping to maintain and improve personal skills they may have lost through illness or disability or to learn new skills they need to cope with changing circumstances.
  • Assist in maintaining links with the community and avoid social isolation.
  • Provide carers with a break and support where someone has more complex needs including dementia.  

Who it is for?

We directly provide day services at a number of centres across the county. These are provided to older people  and to people with a learning disability.

Where it is available?

Local service (Erewash, High Peak, Amber Valley, Bolsover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire Dales, North East Derbyshire, South Derbyshire).

What it costs:

There is no charge to attend a day centre, but there is a small charge to cover the cost of a midday meal and beverages.
