Day Care Centre in West Lancashire

What does it do?

Care Services is the county council’s inhouse provider of social care services to older people and others living in the community. This includes specialist help for people with dementia and rehabilitation services. We provide residential care homes, run day care centres and deliver Reablement and Assessment care. All the services operate on a not-for-profit basis.

The ethos and culture of Care Services is summed up in the phrase ‘person centred care’. We aim to meet the unique needs of each individual using our services.

Derby Day Centre is equipped with a range of aids and adaptations for those experiencing dementia and offers a wide variety of activities within a caring and stimulating environment.
Our social and recreational activities enable you to maintain your everyday skills and independence. Further activities include adult learning classes, playing board games, craft work including knitting and sewing; a television and DVD player are also available.
Service users are offered a two-course meal at lunchtime with refreshments morning and afternoon. The centre caters for any special diets as required.

The Derby Centre is situated in the small town of Ormskirk. We are open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 5.00pm, and can offer some flexibility in these times to meet your individual needs. We have limited on-site parking and a fully accessible drop off point close to the main entrance to assist wheelchair users and visitors with very limited mobility.

Transport to and from the centre is also available.
