Elderly Day Care Centres are in place to benefit both yourself and the person that you care for. They can provide you with some respite from your caring role, as well as offering the opportunity for a new environment and socialising with other community members for your relative.
Many day care centres will have cooked lunches prepared for their guests, as well as arranging events and activities. Some will even provide transport to and from the centres, but this is worth double checking on a case by case basis to be sure.
You will find options for day care all across Norfolk. We have listed some centres below for you, but this won’t be a complete list so if you don’t find what you’re looking for here, we recommend using a care home directory like Housing Care to search.
If you’re also interested in home care services to support your elderly relative, you can take a look at our local Home Care Directory for Norfolk.
