About us

ECL Braintree is a forward thinking Day Centre which offers support and day care for older people. We support customers who may have additional needs that come as a result of decreased mobility, or who are living with Alzheimer's or Dementia. Activities within the Centre and outside in the community are offered as part of your day with us. With our Centre nestled in the heart of Braintree, you will enjoy lunches out, bowling, trips to the cinema, swimming and coffee stops which are all part of our activities outside the Centre. In-house we offer cooking sessions, sensory activities, music sessions, arts and crafts. Individual programmes are tailored to your individual needs and personal goals. Our Trusted Assessors will help you to develop your own plan and our care team will support you step by step throughout the journey to follow that plan and reach your goals.

How Does The Service Work?

We pride ourselves in developing support plans tailored to your needs and through a therapeutic programme of activities and events we will support you to maintain choice, control and independence.Our approach to wellbeing Through a flexible programme of activities which include chair-fit, arts & crafts, reminiscence sessions, cookery, IT, music, pet therapy and community based events we aim to support you to maintain your physical and cognitive wellbeing. Most importantly we provide an environment which stimulates engagement and relationships for our customers who without this would be socially isolated. Our highly skilled staff create a warm, happy and positive atmosphere and receive ongoing training which enhances the support they provide to you.

Pricing

Prices will depend on the length of your session(s) and the level of support you need. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £58. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
