Elderly Day Care Centres in Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire Elderly Day Care Centres

Elderly Day Care Centres work for both you and your relatives. Not only do they provide you with respite from your caring role, perhaps while you work during the day, but Day Care Centres also offer a change of scenery and an experience in an enriching environment in which your elderly relative can socialise with other members of the local elderly community.

Most day care centres – and all on this list – will provide their guests with a cooked lunch time meal. Additionally, they can organise or fully provide transport to and from the centres, but it’s worth double checking with them to make sure.

There are day care options throughout Cambridgeshire and a good variety are listed here for you. That said, this is not an exhaustive list and you can search for day care centres in your area using Google or a care home directory like Housing Care.

Where possible, we have included the price per day and opening times of each day care centre.
