The Alzheimer’s Society Bromley Day Centre re-launched last week, providing local residents with a range of activities that ate aimed at those living with dementia. This centre provides a valuable service to the community, and the changes will offer a more flexible approach for users.
The day centre has been open for more than 20 years and was one of the first centres to offer a bespoke care service for those who have dementia. The re-launch follows a number of improvements that will help the centre continue to meet the needs of those who use the amenities.
At the re-launch event, guests were given the chance to take a tour of the facilities and the extensive gardens and talk to staff and those who make use of the service. The White Gables site will now be open seven days a week from 8:00am to 7:00pm. This will open up the service to users outside of traditional day care hours. The facilities available at the Alzheimer’s Society Bromley Day Centre include the opportunity to have a home-cooked meal, a hairdressing service, music sessions and transport.
More than 4,100 people in Bromley are currently living with dementia. The right type of support and a personalised service, such as that provided at this centre, can enable them to live a well-rounded and fulfilled life.
Do you know someone who is living with the effects of dementia? Have they used the services provided by the Bromley Day Centre? If so, how have they benefitted from it?
