What we do
We support older and physically frail people, including those living with dementia, with enjoyable, therapeutic day care, within a safe and secure environment. Our centres provide an opportunity for members to have fun and socialise with other people, whilst giving family carers a well-deserved break.
We currently have two day centres in our portfolio – Brandon Day Centre in Suffolk, where we have been the provider since January 2017 and All Hallows Day Centre in Ditchingham, South Norfolk which we took over in July 2019. We are also excited to be almost ready to open another new day care centre – The Denny Centre in Diss, which we hope will open later in the summer.

Our teams of dedicated, caring, professional and highly skilled care and support staff receive regular training to ensure they are equipped to meet the personal care needs of those using our centres and support them to maintain their independence, achieve their aspirations, rediscover hobbies or interests and make new friends.
Getting to know you
Before your first visit, we like to arrange a home visit where we come and have a chat to help us understand your needs and interests, give you the chance to ask any questions or share any concerns that we should be aware of. As all our centres offer a home cooked, two course lunch, made from locally sourced ingredients, we will also ask you about any special dietary needs you may have.
Your first visit
Your first visit is a free ‘taster’ day, so all you will need to bring with you is some money for your lunch. This free day gives you an opportunity to experience first-hand what we do at the day centre, meet the team who work there and meet new friends.
We offer a variety of packages, so there is bound to be something to meet your needs. Prices are available on request.
You or your carer can apply direct and we accept referrals from Norfolk and Suffolk Adult Social Care Teams, GPs, healthcare professionals and other agencies.
If you would like to know more about our day care services, please give us a call, email us or pop in for a chat.
