• Day Care at The Orders of St John Care Trust

Our day care can make all the difference to you and your loved one’s well-being by providing a great opportunity to socialise and meet others, get a little help or just have a bit of break to let the person who looks after you at home nip out to run errands.

We have a number of homes that offer a pop-in day care service, which gives friends and family carers access to support. It means that you can take a break with the reassurance that the person you care for will receive the care and assistance they may require, whilst also taking the opportunity to socialise and enjoy the tasty food our homes produce.  

We offer day care facilities that feature tailored and enticing activities, companionship and care within a charming and safe environment. In some of our homes residents have the option to have a bedroom for the day where they can relax in-between activities and meals if they choose to.

Day care services are also suitable for those living with dementia or who may have specialised individual care needs. The services enable those who care for a loved one, to have some respite with the peace of mind that their relative is being well looked after.

Each home has a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full.

Many of the activities feature reminiscence therapy to aid those living with dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

A daily activity schedule for a home may include performances from entertainers, coffee mornings, art and craft, quiz, exercise classes such as Zumba and Thai Chi and visits from local petting farms.

You don’t have to make a big commitment, our day care service is very flexible, and you can vary the times and days from week to week or month to month – have a chat to your nearest home to find out what’s available.
