Saturday Club is held every week from 9am until 3.30pm at
Sandybrook Day Centre
Rue du Craslin
for anyone who has dementia.
This facility enables families and carers to have a break while the person with dementia is cared for in a safe and stimulating environment by our Person-Centred Dementia Care trained staff.
We provide transport and a hot three-course lunch and have various activities and entertainment throughout the day. In good weather people may enjoy the safe garden or perhaps go out accompanied by our staff to visit a car boot sale or have an ice cream.
People may come for the whole day or for just an hour or two.
On the first visit we would like the person with dementia to come with a family member/friend/carer so that we may take details of medical history, name of GP and next of kin for contact purposes. Alternatively the person may bring this written information along with them.
A professional referral is not necessary but the individual accessing this service must have a diagnosis of dementia from the Memory Clinic or a GP. People visiting the Island who have dementia are also welcome.
We charge just £6 per session to cover catering and transport expenses.
