Day Centres

Our Day Centres

The charity runs three day care centres across Glasgow, all of which focus on reducing loneliness and social isolation in older adults. Staff across the centres are experienced which helps to create a caring envitonment. Each centre has its own programme of activities including: 

Each centre also has regular planned days out during the summer, Christmas shopping trips and themed party days for events like Burns Day, Valentines Day and more.

 

Minibuses collect service users to take them to centres from door to door. On arrival centre users enjoy a light breakfast followed by an activity then a 3 course meal together. In the afternoon another activity is followed by tea and coffee before everyone is dropped off home.

 

It costs £10 to attend per person per day and depending on availability it is possible to attend for multiple days each week.
