The wonderful benefits of day care for seniors
Taking care of loved one who may be living with a form of dementia, be vulnerable or isolated can come with its own unique challenges and often has a huge impact on the lives of whole families. At Bridgewater Day Care our aim is to support our clients, as well as their families, by providing a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.
Enjoying Social Opportunities
If an elderly person is living alone, even with family nearby, there is a chance that they could become socially isolated. Loneliness is a huge problem today, and affects individuals both emotionally and physically. Our clients enjoy building friendships with their peers as well as having plenty of interaction with our fantastic care team. We play games, have visits from local singers and artists, we sit down to enjoy a two-course hot meal together, and we do whatever we can to help our clients build relationships with each other.
Support with Additional Needs
We take pride in maintaining the dignity of our clients and respecting their wishes. We understand that support with Personal Care is often hard to accept, that’s why we go to great lengths to ensure that our care workers fully understand the needs of each client that visits the centre. We can assist with bathing, using our own purpose built personal bathing area, we can assist with dressing, grooming, incontinence, eating and we can provide medication reminders. Our compassionate team have completed the Bridgewater Care induction programme, a week long intensive training course in social care, provided 3 references and have been subject to an Enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check and Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults check prior to supporting any clients. This means you can be sure that your loved ones are in safe, caring hands at all times.
Taking Part in Stimulating Activities
We provide a wide range of stimulating activities for our clients throughout the day, though there is no pressure for anyone to take part if they do not wish. Our support team go to great lengths to plan appropriate activities that will help everyone to reach their own individual goals. We enjoy gardening, art, bingo, shared reading, reminiscence activities and even pet therapy!
Respite for Carers
One of the advantages that a day care centre can provide is respite. Our services allow family carers to spend time away from their loved ones without worrying about their care. This may free up some time to catch up on jobs, go to the shops, or even catch up on some much-needed rest before their care duties resume.
There are so many amazing benefits for the whole family when a vulnerable gets to enjoy some time out in a safe, purpose built centre such as ours. Why not find out for yourself by booking a free taster visit? Our FREE taster sessions are available at a day that suits you either in the AM or the PM for a period of 2 hours. To take advantage of this free service please give us a call and we will be delighted to discuss your requirements and answer any queries you may have.
