A TYPICAL DAY

 
Staff are on hand throughout the day to ensure clients enjoy the day, and help with any issues that may arise.
 
ARRIVAL: 10.30am

Once in the Centre clients settle into the Lounge, have a cup of tea, coffee, etc. and share their news with the staff and their friends.  This may well be their only outing in the week, so they may have lots to talk about.

A whole range of personal day care services are offered to clients.  We have special bathing facilities for clients who are unable to use a normal bath with safety, with a care assistant on hand to help them.  We offer regular hairdressing and chiropody services, and we have a Wellbeing Clinic.
