Day care

Many of our care homes offer day care services. Our Day Care programme offers care, support and activities for elderly people living in the community. You can be assured that we have the empathy and understanding that you would want for your loved one – while you take some time out.


A summer break 

We understand that everyone caring for a loved one needs and deserves a break from time to time. Over summer, we will guarantee bed bookings from December to February at some of our care homes, so that you and your family can make holiday plans. It is important to us that your loved one enjoys their time with us at a care home that suits them.

Respite or short stay care can be accessed via respite and carer support funding, or you may choose to pay for the service privately. 

“ Our residents can enjoy their summer days with activities that are simple but fun.”

Why is a day activities programme so important?

Caring for someone can be a full time job. And, as a carer it is all too easy to carry on working without a break, not realising how exhausted or stressed you have become.

This can ultimately have an impact on your own health. Activities programmes can give you the chance to relax, regroup your energy and have some much deserved time for yourself, leaving you energised and happier, and with more to give.

Day care can be an important part of caring for an elderly person at home. For people being cared for at home, it can provide a change, the company of different people and some stimulation through other activities, while giving their caregiver a welcome break.

For people living alone, it offers a day out and the opportunity to socialise with other people.
