What is elderly day care?
Day care services can often be found within a local centre or care home and give older people the opportunity to receive the care and support they need for the day, whilst socialising with people who have things in common.
Ordinarily, the person would visit day care regularly, arriving in time for breakfast or a mid-morning snack and often staying for the whole day.
As well as providing a great opportunity for the person to socialise and make new friends, elderly day care at our Colchester care home can also be the perfect time for a family carer to catch up on daily life or take a well-earned rest, reassured that their relative is being cared for.
