Day centre for people with young onset dementia

What does it do?

Located in Rochford, the Peaceful Place Day Centre offers the opportunity for adults with young onset dementia to take part in a wide range of enjoyable stimulating activities in a safe and friendly environment. At the same time carers benefit from often much needed respite.

Our service also includes a door to door minibus service that enables us to maintain regular contact with the carers and families of our members.

What we do

Operating weekdays between 8.30 AM and 4.30 PM with a high staff to member ratio, our aim is to stimulate the mental, physical and social skills of our members. We achieve this by providing a wide range of recreational activities such as:

  • Pool, air hockey & table tennis

  • Pub games & quizzes
  • Weekly outings & restaurant visits
  • Baking & gardening
  • Live music & guest speakers
