Older people respite & Day Services

Our Older People Day Service offers specialist, person-centred support, and a range of tailored activities which are focused on maintaining independence, engaging with the local community and social interaction.

Whether you require a short break from your caring duties, or your loved one requires 1:1 support, together we can build a support plan to meet your needs.

How we can support you

We support customers who have additional needs that come as a result of decreased mobility, or who are living with conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s.

Through a flexible programme of both on-site and community-based activities we aim to support you to maintain choice, control and independence.


Prices will depend on the length your session(s) and the level of support needed. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £62.

We can provide the following:

  • Specialist support for people living with a range of conditions, including Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
  • Access to our highly qualified in-house clinical team.
  • Opportunities to join local community groups, activities, and initiatives.
  • Private transport.
  • Flexible hours to suit you.
  • Guidance and support to continue with everyday activities, enabling your loved one to stay at home longer.
  • Interactive activities, using innovative technology and sensory equipment.
  • Gold Standard Dementia Environment Accredited.

Support at home

Many of our customers enjoy the social interaction of meeting at our centres or in the community, but where that isn’t practical, we can also offer support in your home. We can help with activities such as shopping or health appointments, or just provide companionship whilst a carer takes some well earned respite.

Phil and his wife Linda went through a difficult time after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and they were concerned about the effect his condition would have on their quality of life.

Meet George



George has dementia, has never lived alone, and has always had someone looking after his nutritional needs. He now lives with his daughter and was distraught that he’d forgotten how to make a cup of tea.
