Staveley Day ServicesDay Services for people with dementia in Stavely in Derbyshire
What does it do?
We provide day services in group settings and one to one support to dependent older people living in the Chesterfield area. The main service operates from the Staveley Centre, however, services take place in a variety of local settings including Hasland Resource Centre and locally based community rooms in the wider community.
We work closely with other service providers in the area. We will always try to identify the most appropriate locally available service. Our aim is to develop effective links and work in partnership with other statutory and community based organisations in order to achieve a more person centred approach to planning activities. This will assist in maintaining independent living for our service users.
There are bathing facilities within the day centre which are available for people who are unable to bathe at home.
There is a team of Community Support Workers who provide services to older people with mental ill health, including dementia, and their carers.
They also support younger people with dementia. This can be short or long term support.
The service forms part of a care package to help people live in the community with as much independence as possible. Their work is carried out in the local community and is usually a weekly visit lasting up to two hours. Community support workers work closely with individuals on a one to one basis as well as in a group setting supporting the day service worker.
