Older people

Day services

Day service provision is available for older people across the area to provide opportunities for increased socialisation for individuals. Our services are delivered through both community hub based or building based models depending on the level of support required. Support is offered for sessional activities that are engaging and meaningful whilst in a safe and pleasant environment.

Volunteer Day Centres

Each centre provides support to socially isolated older people over the age of 65 who are unable to access other community facilities independently.

These day centres are run in partnership with volunteers from each of the related communities; they run the day centres on a day-to-day basis. They offer companionship and support to people who attend, this enables them to continue to feel part of their community and helps aid and improve their wellbeing.

Volunteers also assist with transporting people to and from the day centres. As well as companionship, they provide a freshly cooked lunch, shared activities and visits to local places of interest.
