Elderly Day Care Centres in Hampshire

Day Care Centres in Hampshire

Day care centres offer a range of activities including light exercise, guest speakers, singing, crafts and baking, as well as often providing a cooked, nutritious lunch and other wellbeing services.

They also facilitate an opportunity for older people to get out and socialise with new and old friends alike. The person you care for can attend the centre regularly, usually one or two days a week, providing you with valuable time off of your caring duties.

Day centres are run by a range of organisations including local charities, councils and care homes in the area, with some providing additional services such as health checks and personal care. Centres can be specialised to cater for wheelchair uses, those with poor sight, or those with dementia.
