Activities

Each day is different at the Davers Club. Your loved one is welcome to do their own thing, join a group activity, or help with daily tasks. 

No two days are the same in our Bury St Edmunds day club because we have a different combination of members joining us, with different interests and hobbies. Members choose what they’d like to do, and activities might include singing, creative sessions, exercise or dancing, gardening or reminiscence. 

Activities for everyone

As a number of our day club members are living with dementia, we like to include word and memory games and quizzes. There’s always space for quiet time or individual activities, and we’ll sometimes head out for a trip. 

Some members love to spend time in the garden or they might have a pamper session over at Davers Court. Others light to help around the club because it gives them a sense of achievement. We never dictate what day club members do. This is a place where people should feel at home, and do what makes them happy. 

Savouring meal times

Eating well in later life is vital for health and wellbeing. So, when it comes to meal times at the Davers Club, everyone – members and day club colleagues – sits down together to enjoy a tasty and nutritious chef-made three-course lunch. We’ll chat as we eat, and have some music on gently in the background – simple ways to encourage any members who are living with dementia to eat more. If anyone needs a little extra support to eat, we help them with discretion and dignity.
