Adorno Community Day Centre
Providing a safe, fun & compassionate environment for older people
We Can Help
When the first covid-19 lockdown was announced in March 2020, services providing short breaks for full time carers closed down and support networks and groups weren’t able to operate in person. Some moved online but the stimulation that services such as Day Centres provide to older people as well as the respite for carers could not be replaced.
Adorno Community Day Centre have now successfully launched at community based venues in Yate, Winterbourne and Stoke Gifford and have plans to expand their capacity to accommodate more people.
We can’t emphasise enough the joy seen in our clients faces when taking part in our group based activities at our day centre. It’s been such a tough year, but for older people, particularly those with a cognitive impairment, it has been impossible to maintain contact with their normal social circles. We have had new friendships flourish in our first 2 weeks and it’s magical to witness.
Activities which clients can take part in include; visits from therapy pets, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST), intergenerational events, board games, gardening club, ice creams in the sunshine, air hockey, pool, bingo, pottery, chair based exercise, oil painting and much more.
We have experienced an significant uptake in bookings as word of our service has spread and it has become clear that there is a real and urgent need for Centres such as ours to by fully operational five days a week.
Areas We Cover
Adorno Community Day Centre first opened their doors in May 2021 and have been providing essential respite care to primary carers while at the same time offering their clients the opportunity to enjoy and participate in different activities each week and to interact with and meet new friends.
