The ethos of Day Care is that of a holistic nature caring for the physical,emotional and spiritual needs of the person with Alzheimer's Disease.
From 10 am when breakfast is served to afternoon tea at 3.15p.m. The full attention of staff and volunteers is geared to creating a happy and safe environment for the person with Alzheimer's Disease. We strive to maintain self esteem and dignity and also to find a silver lining in an otherwise dark cloud.
Showers and Baths are available along with Hairdressing and Manicures. Massage Therapy and Aromatherapy are also part of the everyday activities.
We aim to maintain where possible the interests and hobbies of each person attending "The Birches" Day Care Centre. Reading the daily paper, listening to old time music, Reminiscence Therapy, recitations, playing bowls and participating in Arts and Crafts such as Painting, Pottery, Knitting are a few examples of all on that is on offer daily.
When the weather permits and on many other occasions the Minibus takes us all on outings that encompass visits to local Parks, Churches, Museums, Beaches etc. We can gladly spend many peaceful hours in our own lovely garden when not away on bus trips.
