A big thank you to family member Lisa Kelynack for raising £536 for the Willow day care centre
Braving the wet and windy weather Lisa Kelynack set off on Sunday 17th September to take part in a sponsored walk raising valuable funds for the Willow day care centre. The walk started from the Willow day care centre to the Ypres Tavern in Sittingbourne and back.
The Willow day care centre is a popular day care centre specialising in dementia care, located in the grounds of Avante Care & Support’s care home, Court Regis in Sittingbourne
The day care centre is a not for profit charitable organisation using its surplus revenue to further develop and strengthen the service.
Lisa Kelynack, said ‘I took part in the sponsored walk for the Willow day care because I wanted to give something back, to say thank you for all the support they have given to both me and my mum over the last 4 years. The Willow has allowed me to keep my mum at home much longer than I ever thought. When mum visits the day centre I know she is going to be looked after, eat lovely home cooked food and enjoy her day, this allows me to have a much needed break from caring. The staff are lovely, helpful and caring and I know I can talk to Jeannette the day care manager at any time, it’s a fantastic day centre’.
The Willow day care centre staff team provide opportunities for its members to interact socially and encourage participation in stimulating activities. The centre welcomes referrals from social services, mental health teams and G.Ps, as well as direct private referrals.
Jeannette Spooner day care manager said, ‘The family members of the day care centre are extremely supportive and are often giving up their time to help with events, or like Lisa, taking part in sponsored events to raise much needed funds for the service, a big thank you Lisa from all of us at the Willow day care centre’.
