Day Care Hub

A welcome break for carers and a great day out for the person you support

At Orchard House, we understand the need to support carers who may be juggling their own family and work life in addition to their caring role. Our day care centre not only provides a welcome break for carers, but also aims to make a positive difference in our visitors’ lives. We strive to promote the health, independence, and wellbeing of our visitors. Following a comprehensive assessment, we plan all the care and support our visitors need to ensure they have a supportive and fulfilling day at Orchard House.

Our knowledgeable team has a wealth of experience and can support people with conditions including Parkinson’s disease, stroke, dementia, and learning disabilities. We’re aware that for some people simply getting older can lead to isolation and loneliness, which can have a negative impact on health. A day at Orchard House can be just what the doctor ordered to keep the person you care for mentally and physically stimulated through a wide range of engaging activities and the opportunity to socialise with others, which in turn, can help keep them in their own home for longer. Day care can also be a great opportunity for individuals to get familiar with Orchard House and our team, and can help ease the transition to a longer respite break. Please visit our respite care section to find out more about short stays at Orchard House.

Best choice for the care and support you need

Our inclusive price means there are no unexpected extras. At Orchard House visitors can:

  • Enjoy hot and cold refreshments throughout the day
  • Enjoy a tasty and nutritious two-course lunch, with special diets catered for
  • Take part in a host of activities and social events throughout the year
  • Take advantage of our lovely gardens and safe spaces to wander or sit and relax in the sunshine
  • Take a break and relax in our massage chair and enjoy a mini manicure
  • Enjoy supported personal care in our wet room or luxury spa bath; and
  • We are also able to offer hairdressing and chiropody services, paid directly to the therapist.

At Orchard House we provide our visitors with opportunities to follow up with old interests and take up new ones, including arts and crafts, quizzes, and games. We also have visits from musical groups, encourage our visitors to partake in exercise sessions and to get stuck in cooking and baking. The benefits of therapeutic activities should not be underestimated, and we’re sure our visitors would all agree that laughter definitely is the best medicine!

It’s also a chance for us to get to know the person you care for and make sure we can provide them with the support they need. Taster sessions are four-hour visits and include a two-course lunch.
