Hartlepool Day Centre provides day care for older people with dementia and support for their carers. It is open Monday to Saturday and transport and lunch are provided.
Our day centre provides personal care in a warm and friendly atmosphere, created to ensure our guests enjoy their day.
Guests are usually collected by our minibus and the first part of the day is spent settling in and with group games and discussions, Guests do not have to take part if they do not want to and may sit quietly or in small groups if they wish. Lunch is cooked on the premises and served in the dining area. Our kitchen has a 5 star food hygiene rating from Hartlepool Borough Council. There is a choice of activities in the afternoon, with crafts, TV or games being available. We also have a library of books films and music. Transport home is provided at the end of the afternoon.
We also provide personal care including assistance with bathing in our purpose built bathroom, help with using the toilet if needed, hairdressing, shaving, feeding and nail care.
Transport is provided in our adapted mini-bus which has a tailgate lift.
The day centre is available to anyone living in the Hartlepool Borough Council area.
As well as providing a service for guests with dementia we support carers through our Carer Support Worker who provides information, practical help and social activities.
