The Willow Day Care Centre
Monday – Friday: 8am – 6pm
The Willow Day Care Centre (known affectionately as The Willows) is an established day centre specialising in dementia care.
The Willows is located in the grounds of Avante Care & Support’s care home, Court Regis and is open seven days a week from 9am until 4pm The centre provides a safe, bright and relaxing atmosphere for people living with dementia.
Our team of qualified and attentive staff 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. Attending day care services helps to relieve loneliness and boredom for people living on their own and assists people in maintaining independence whilst providing respite and peace of mind for their families. The Willow Day Care Centre staff group get to know each person as an individual and provide person-centred dementia care.
There is a Chiropodist that attends every 8 weeks and a shower service is also available. There are freshly cooked hot meals available which are prepared in the Court Regis kitchen with all special dietary requirements catered for. Meals consist of a main course and dessert and there is free-flowing tea, coffee and cold drinks throughout the day with snacks provided too.
The Willow Day Care Centre believes in supporting the families and carers as well as those who attend the centre, so there are bi-monthly informal support meetings held for family members and carers to meet up. There is also a regular newsletter containing information and news, and helpful ‘signposts’ to other services available where necessary.
There is no joining fee and you only pay for the days you attend at our day care centre. For more information or to arrange a viewing please call us on 01795 428364.
