Day care for people living with dementia
We are now taking advance bookings for our new day care service for people living with dementia to be held at the Poppy Centre.
The service will provide respite for carers and support and stimulation for people living with dementia.
This nurse led service recognises that those of us living with dementia need to feel safe and carers need to know their loved ones are enjoying an environment which concentrates on them as individuals, encouraging and emphasising strengths and interests. How will we do this? We intend to ensure that people are recognised as unique, are physically and mentally challenged in a setting which offers reminiscence, singing, poetry readings, games, gardening, quizzes and gentle exercise and one which is not afraid to listen to new ideas and suggestions. We are proud of our 5 star rated on site kitchen and have experience of catering for a range of dietary and medical needs which we will put to best use with snacks and a three course lunch each day, included in our daily cost.
We have listened to carers and the opportunity to have a rest, go to work or just have some “Me time” will be invaluable and help to ensure that their relationship with the person they care for stays positive and strong. Carers can rest easy in the knowledge that whilst they are working or enjoying themselves, the person they care for is also having a positive experience.
Our opening time will be 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday making full or part time work possible if desired. We are willing to answer initial enquiries, discuss costs, other financial advice, form filling and signposting to additional local community support if needed. Once established we will set up carers groups so that people can meet and support each other
The day care service is located at the Poppy Centre, 179 Townsend Lane, Clubmoor, Liverpool L13 9DY.
It has private parking available for drop-off and pick-ups.
