Domiciliary care / Care at home
We are CQC registered to provide personal care in your own home, or a place required and offer a flexible approach to meet your needs.
Keeping Busy at Peggy’s (Day Care)
A daytime of activities including a hot meal and transport if required based on the model of cognitive stimulation therapy, music, fun and laughter. Trips out to local community venues is also included on some days, dependent on the needs of those who come. Transport may be able to be provided. Day care can be a natural transition from attending Peggy’s Place or being in receipt of 1:1 support with the added support of familiar members of staff to support the person and their family.
We will very shortly be able to offer short breaks from 1 night to 8 weeks overnight accommodation with support as required. Our three double or twin and one single en-suite rooms will be able to provide for individuals as well as couples and a flexible package of care to meet the needs of those staying with us, whether it is to attend a family occasion together or a supported respite break together or apart. You may be a spouse who needs an operations but delay this due to the person diagnosed with dementia not accepting support to enable this to happen. Or you may just need a holiday break where the person with dementia can be supported by our day care facility and/or 1:1 carers. Please see our Gallery for pictures on what to expect.
1:1 support to assist people to engage with activities in the community or at home. This could include life story, supporting hospital visits or family events such as weddings.
