We run five day centres providing fun, friendship, support and respite for older people in a safe and accessible venue.
Transport is provided to and from the centres by SCA Transport who provide a door-to-door service in fully accessible minibuses with fully trained drivers and escorts.
Our day centres are run by our team of trained and professional care staff along with a team of volunteers. We have been running day centres across the whole of Southampton for over 20 years.
In addition to our more traditional day care centres we have dementia clubs. These are specifically for older people with dementia.
Our clubs offer:
a great opportunity to make friends and become part of a group
memory exercises, reminiscence projects, word and number puzzles.
activities such as gentle excercise classes, carpet bowls, movement to music and skittles
Arts and Crafts
