Welcome to All Hallows Day Centre
Located in the village of Ditchingham, near Bungay, All Hallows Day Centre is a modern, purpose-built facility where we support older people with different levels of care and support needs, with enjoyable and stimulating day care within a safe environment.
The centre provides up to 30 people a day with an opportunity to have fun, socialise and take part in activities, and helps them to maintain skills whilst offering family carers a well-earned break.
Facilities include a spacious lounge/activity room, large dining room, assisted bathrooms, treatment room, quiet rooms, landscaped gardens and greenhouse.
Our team of professional care staff are fully trained in all aspects of personal care and work closely with families, social workers, GPs, district nurses and home care agencies to maintain a high level of service and continuity of care. Our team can provide assistance with eating and personal care.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our Day Care team.
