We believe that older people have the right to inclusion, independence and choice. We offer a quality safe caring environment for individuals that attend the centre. Our aim is to support them to continue to live independently in the community. We provide person centred care and assistance, working together with carers and families to support their individual needs.
Our staff are friendly, committed and qualified and are led by an experienced Day Services Manager. All staff and volunteers are subjected to a DBS check (formerly known as CRB). We work within the Service User Charter that underpins the ethos of the centre.
