We are a charity that provides a specialised respite day care service, and community centre, for vulnerable elderly people living in and around the London Boroughs of Brent, Ealing and Harrow. The Centre is unique and has been doing this invaluable work on a daily basis for nearly 40 years since it was first established in 1979.
Since then we have grown, to become the main charitable provider of specialist day care for vulnerable adults in Brent and the surrounding area. In recent years we have adapted our services to support an increasingly large population of adults with dementia and learning disabilities.
What Service We Provide
Our extensive programme of regular activities and events is designed to be beneficial for both physical and mental health for all our clients as well as specifically improving the quality of life for people in all stages of dementia. Our trained and qualified carers and a team of regular volunteers enable clients living with dementia to take part in activities held weekly at the centre. Lunch is also provided each day which fulfils all dietary and nutritional requirements.
Why We Do It
When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. At the centre, we support and help the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. There is a vital need to keep those with dementia mobile and healthy and enable them to continue living in their own homes in the community.
Where It Takes Place
All our activities take place at the Sudbury Neighbourhood Centre. The centre is open Monday to Friday 10.30am -3.30pm.
Our activities include:
- Trips and outings
- Events and themed lunches
- Outside entertainment from local schools, opera and theatre groups
- Gardening (when weather permits)
All of these activities have a wonderful effect on older people and are of huge benefit to those living with dementia and can help to: enhance memory, improve communication, gain strength, and maintain cardiovascular health. We also take our clients on outings to Hyde Park, coastal resorts and Christmas shopping trips.
