Unique to Wharfedale, the Day Centre is here to support and care for older people in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere; an inclusive meeting place. It offers quality time for individuals with various degrees of memory impairment and / or physical problems to access social activity and remain active and engaged.
A dedicated team of specialist trained carers and volunteers provide supervision of personal care needs under the guidance of an experienced manager.
Caring for Family Carers
We know that you must have quality time to yourself and understand that knowing your loved one is safe and happy is vital. Our care is centred on the whole family; the more we know about your loved one will ensure he or she has the best personalised care.
If you need to discuss any aspect of care, or just need a listening ear, please call in, we are here for you. We will monitor any conditions and liaise with you to promote communication, please feel free to give us your feedback to improve our service.
