Orchard Centre

Day club members can choose what they’d like to do each day and can also help out around the club.

Through our Activity Based Care approach, we encourage day club members to help out with everyday tasks like washing up, dusting, tidying up and gardening – all things which help members to practice important daily living skills and stay as active and independent as possible.

Activities for everyone

Members decide what they'd like to do when they arrive each day. Typical activities include singing, dancing, arts and crafts, reminiscence, quizzes and gardening. We have a snooker table and indoor bowls is popular too.

We all enjoy a good party here and day club members always get involved in organising our celebrations. For our Diamond Jubilee party, a group of members planned the entire event, including agreeing a budget.

Enjoying good food

Mealtimes at the Orchard Centre are very sociable and feel just like family mealtimes – our team sits down to eat with members, everyone helps with setting the tables, and there’s tea and coffee afterwards for anyone who wants it.

Services and support

Day club members can arrange to have their healthcare appointments here and are also free to use the hairdressing salon and chiropody services available next door at Care UK’s Appleby House care home. Representatives of local places of worship are always happy to visit the day club when asked.

A part of the community

The Orchard Centre has great links with local people and organisations which help members to stay involved in community life. Schoolchildren often spend time with day club members to get special insights to help with school projects on topics like wartime evacuation, or changes in eating habits over the last 50 years. And a police community support officer regularly pops in for a cup of tea and a chat.
