About this hub

Marylands Wellbeing Hub is a forward thinking day centre for older adults with a range of support needs for people with mental health issues, Alzheimer’s and individuals living with Dementia.

We provide person centred support to older people with a range of health care needs including dementia. The focus is on having fun, trying new activities and maintaining independence.

Customers are able to visit the local community on a weekly basis including the beauty spots of the surrounding area using our own transport which can be also booked to access the service daily.

How does the service work?

With support tailored to each individual, we offer a wide range of activities and care that encourage choice and independence.

Activities include floor games, movement to music and themed cinema weeks as well as quizzes, table and board games, reminiscing with friends and discussions about current affairs.

We offer a variety of art and craft activities including making cards, artwork and themed decorations to display at the centre throughout the year. Our activities encourage stimulation for cognitive, physical and emotional support.

Our facilities are accessibility friendly which means we can cater for any requirements you may have. Activities at our hub are focused on maintaining independence and improving wellbeing.

Our approach to your care

Activities at our hub are focused on maintaining independence and improving wellbeing.

We provide the opportunity to take part in a wide range of enjoyable and stimulating social activities; both onsite and out amongst the local community. We recognise that carers need support too.

Our services are tailored to the needs of carers as well as our customers because we know that time away from each other is important.

Our highly skilled staff create a warm, happy and positive atmosphere and are specialists in supporting older adults with learning disabilities, sensory impairments, Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

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.
