Our first day at the Denny

We are delighted and proud to re-open the Denny Day Centre today, Tuesday 10 March.

After a long period of closure and a few hiccups along the way, our new care staff team, led by Day Care Services Manager Laura Edgar, welcomed new customers to the Centre.

Within a safe environment, they will be able to enjoy stimulating day care and the opportunity to have fun and take part in activities, which will help them to maintain skills whilst offering family carers a well-earned break.

Most importantly, the Denny Centre aims to help combat isolation, promote independence and improve wellbeing and will give those using the service the chance to socialise and make new friends.

On our first day, it didn’t take long for our new members to get into the swing of things. Pool was the activity chosen by Sheila, whilst Chris and Margaret opted for baking biscuits.

After a busy morning, our new members sat down to a lovely roast chicken lunch, followed by lemon cheesecake and cream.

Afternoon activities involved jigsaws and puzzles and before home time, we celebrated our first day with a fantastic cake made by Senior Catering Assistant Sue.

Care and Support Assistants Liz, Alicia, Harriet and Julie had a great first day and we hope that we gave our new members an enjoyable day and one to remember. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again and to welcoming new members.
