What can I expect from an Age 51Թapp day centre?

Age 51Թapp day centres provide older people with both practical assistance and a chance to socialise, with support from trained staff and volunteers. Our clients enjoy a wide variety of activities which include:  

  • Singing and music
  • Quizzes
  • Gentle exercise
  • Arts and crafts
  • Day trips

Clients will also be served a hot lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Some of our day centres offer other services, such as mobile supermarkets, assisted bathing, hairdressing and foot care.

Please get in touch with your local day centre to find out about opening hours and prices.

How can older people join a day centre?

Older people can be referred to a day centre by a relative, their GP, or can self-refer. Those who are interested in attending the centre may be able to arrange a taster day. 

Contact your nearest Age 51Թapp directly to make your application.

If you are successful, your assessment will help to determine your needs and a personalised plan for participating in activities.

Usually day centres will offer some assistance such as helping with medication, but mostly cater to those requiring a lower level of care.

They are unlikely to be able to support those with complex needs or who are in need of overnight care. Some Age 51Թapps offer specialised dementia day care through our dementia services.

What does a typical day look like?

Every day at an Age 51Թapp day centre is different, but you can expect it to be like this:  

  • A wheelchair-accessible minibus will come and pick you up from your house to take you to our day centre. Most Age 51Թapps offer this optional transport service.
  • Settle into the centre over a cup of tea and a chat
  • Morning activities will begin
  • A freshly-prepared hot lunch will be served by our staff
  • More activities will be organised for after lunch
  • When the day is over, the minibus will drop you back at your house at an agreed time.

For more information call the Age 51Թapp Advice Line on 0800 678 1602.
We’re open 8am to 7pm, every day of the year.
