Our Day Programme

Many older people can find the days long and lonely in their own home. Available five days a week, our much-loved Day Programme is part of our philosophy of caring for older people in as many ways as possible. The Programme provides a day of activity, friendship and fun, as well as time out for family and caregivers.

Care philosophy

To support older people in our community to stay independent, and to reduce stress for caregivers.

Level of care

Our Day Programme runs from 8am to 3pm five days a week. (Later end time may be possible, please enquire). The day comprises a wide range of activities (depending on attendees’ interests), including indoor sports, games, music, crafts and lunch – and of course, regular tea breaks!

What does everyone love most about our day programme?

I feel very well looked after. I don’t feel like I live in a hospital – it feels like a home most of the time.
