Day Services Manager
“I see my role as a chance to help people to do the same activities that they would have enjoyed before they became ill. Mental stimulation has been proven to be a very effective method of slowing the symptoms of dementia.”
Activities and Day Trips
JW Care Group employs a specialist team of day care service led by Sandra, our Day Services Manager. Residents from all our homes have the opportunity to partake in the wide range of activities which we offer on a daily basis, from games and sports, to one-to-one quiet time in a relaxed environment. The activities are adapted to suit the needs of our particular residents so that we can prolong their physical and mental fitness in a way that they can enjoy. Some of these activities are hosted in the homes themselves, whilst others are provided in our separate Activity Centre at Karenza, or the purpose built therapy room at Holly House. In addition to our in-house activities, we also provide regular day trips, including countryside walks and visits to local museums.
As well as offering these activities to our permanent residents, we also have limited Day Care placements at our homes which operate 7 days a week. We provide varied, stimulating activities , companionship and care within a safe environment. The service is suitable for residents of all ages with varying levels of care needs, including those who have dementia.
Attending day services helps to relieve the loneliness and isolation of people living on their own and assists people in maintaining independence. Day Care services are also suitable for people who live with relatives, enabling family carers to have some respite with the peace of mind that their relative is being cared for.
This service can also offer potential residents a chance to get comfortable with the home whilst waiting for a permanent bed, which will ease the transition into the new home.
