“All Hallows is a lifeline for both of us. People with dementia need constant stimulation and socialisation to thrive. For a lone family carer, this is both impossible and exhausting. When I leave Bertie at All Hallows, I know he’ll get the stimulation he needs in a warm, friendly and caring atmosphere. And I can have a few hours to get on with things or to rest.
The staff couldn’t be nicer. Their commitment and enthusiasm is extraordinary. They look after people with a wide range of needs with imagination, creativity and an apparently endless well of empathy. I can’t praise or thank them enough.”
|“Day care is good, and I enjoy coming to All Hallows. I like watering the plants, gardening, arts and crafts and dancing with the staff who are good but also funny and cheeky.”
“To be able to get out for the day from just being at home helps with my mental health and has built up my confidence. I’ve made lots of lovely new friends and really enjoy taking part in arts and crafts which helps me feel less stressed. I also love the live entertainment and having a dance.
The staff are fantastic. They are always happy to help, are good fun and constantly make me laugh.”
|“I love it here; the people are nice to me. I like all the staff and the food is great. If I didn’t come here, I’d be sitting at home on my own, so it is lovely to have company and lots to do. I particularly enjoy doing arts and crafts.”
