Day Centres for older people

There are a number of day centres across the region which can provide you with the opportunity to get out of the house and meet new people. Being away from home, even for just a few hours, can be a welcome break. Day centres can offer you the opportunity to take part in activities, learn new skills and hobbies and have a hot meal. It can also be a break for anyone who helps to look after you when you are at home.

Charges for day centres are relatively low and vary from one centre to the other. Help with transport to and from day centres may be available.

For more information about day centres contact your local Social Work office or the centre of your choice.
