A fun, thriving, day club offering personalised support for people with dementia.
Located in a residential area of Poole in Dorset, Garland Road day club offers personalised care for older people who have Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. Our friendly and experienced team supports people who are happy living in their own home, but who would like some daytime company and care.
Our patient, friendly team is specially trained in caring for older people with dementia and our day club is the only one of its kind in Poole. We take a person-centred approach to care, helping day club members to stay independent and live fulfilling lives in the community.
The day club has a calm and relaxed atmosphere which helps people to quickly settle in and feel comfortable. We find that the tranquil environment is very soothing, which is particularly helpful for individuals who may not have been anywhere without their carers for some time.
We work with each day guest’s individual abilities, offer choices and listen to how they want to spend their time. And we work hard to build up each person’s confidence and self esteem. Our day club can provide valuable respite for families and other carers, and we always find time to spend time for a chat, to listen and talk through any challenges they're facing. We can even help families to liaise with social services if they’d like us to.
