What We Do
Older Persons Day Services provide support to individuals living with a diagnosis of dementia living in the community, regardless of age. The aim of the service is to enhance social and mental well-being through positive interaction and meaningful activity. The individual will have access to a multidisciplinary team, therefore reducing the impact of dementia on the person and their families.
Can anyone use this service?
