Over the past 25 years many local residents have accessed the day care service. As a dedicated team we have promoted social inclusion for older people and enabled our service users to remain active citizens within their community. We have established an intermediate service model that fills the gap between home support and institutional care.
Since our inception we have continued to build and develop our services and support programmes to meet the needs of older people. We offer:
A service to over 500 older people and their families and carers including taking service users via minibus to and from the centre.
A diverse and unique range of activities for our service users including reminiscence, quizzes, musical games, chair exercises, holistic and therapeutic activities to improve their physical and mental well being.

Our chef picks some fresh produce from our garden for lunch!
A library of books and videos for members to access and also a small shop offering biscuits, chocolates and basic staples.
A selection of singers/musicians who visit the centre to entertain us with a range of tunes to suit everyone's taste.

I've never enjoyed myself so much. Before I just sat in but now I look forward to getting out
I love it. It's great to get out and see old friends
Out of all the clubs I've been to I'd rather have the Rainbow. It's the best!
