    Supportive daycare for people with dementia.

    Socialise in a safe environment

    The clubs provide people with dementia a chance to socialise in a safe environment and offer respite for their carers. During the clubs carers get a break from caring and can spend the time doing whatever they would like to do.

    Weekday Group Social Club

    We run once a week daycare for more active people with dementia at the Hobbayne Centre. Sessions include:

    • Activities which everyone can join in including exercise classes
    • Day centre support for those at an earlier stage of dementia
    • Social contact and lunch/refreshments for everyone attending
    • Trips to local places of interest, such as Kew Gardens, Richmond Park and the Brand Museum

    Recently as lockdown restrictions have eased, we have been able to resume meetings with some of our Thursday Group to go on socially distanced Nature walks in smaller groups than usual.
