Are agreed with our day care members through regular group meetings as well as through their individual support plans. Activities combine mental, physical and social stimulation.

These include:
- Socialising
- Reminiscence
- Quizzes
- Word Games
- Exercise
- Arts & Crafts
- Various trips & outings throughout the year

Our Referral Procedure:
We operate an open referral system (this means that anyone can request this service) for people who live in the communities we serve.
