The Britten Club is a day care centre in Lowestoft where older people from the local area, including those who are living with dementia, can enjoy a change of scene and the chance to do fun activities with new friends.

We’re flexible about when members join us – some come along for a day while others are here four days a week. However frequently our members visit our day care centre, they find it gives them a refreshing change from the ‘four walls’ of living at home. They get to meet friends and take part in fun and stimulating activities too.

Dementia expertise

Many of our day centre members are living with dementia and our skilled team is fully trained and experienced in caring for older people with this condition. They will ensure that your loved one has an enjoyable and fulfilling time at the Britten Club in safe and comfortable surroundings.

Days for members with advanced dementia

We’ve set aside two days a week – Mondays and Wednesdays – especially for members who are living with advanced dementia, so we can focus on enabling them to get the most out of their time with us.
 
If your loved one is living with dementia at an advanced stage and you’re caring for them at home, we’d love to provide you with some extra help and support at one or both of these sessions. Call us on 0333 321 1984 to find out more.

All-new facilities

You’ll find our Lowestoft day care centre adjacent to Britten Court care home Our new, purpose built facilities are designed to help older people, including those who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, to stay independent for longer.
 
The Britten Club has an assisted bathroom, as well as a kitchen and a laundry room, so we can help members with their personal care if they’re finding this increasingly difficult to do for themselves. We can also help them to make themselves a snack (meals are provided) or do some laundry, so that they retain vital independent living skills for as long as possible.
 
Britten Club members are welcome to use the superb facilities in Britten Court care home next door too at no extra charge. There’s an in-house cinema in the home, a hair salon and even a coffee shop. Many members of our day care centre love being able to make use of these stunning facilities – a pamper session in the hair salon is a popular choice!

Support for all the family

As well as giving members a change of scene, our day care centre in Lowestoft enables their carers to have a break and some time to themselves, whether they need to do shopping, to meet friends or to go to appointments. They tell us that being able to do these everyday tasks without worrying about their loved one makes a huge difference to them. 
 
If you think the Britten Club day care centre in Lowestoft could make a difference to you and your loved one, call us to arrange a FREE* taster session on 0333 321 1984. Find out more about how the club works.
