The Service aims to develop, maintain and prevent the loss of a person's independence by enabling people to rebuild their confidence, increase socialisation and an overall improvement in their quality of life.
At Summerwood Day Service our services are built around you. Everything from transport to activities and leisure time is tailored to provide you with quality care and an enjoyable experience.
Activities: We offer a wide range of activities focusing on recreational, educational and life skills. Groups can take part in activities such as working on the community allotment project, ice skating, horse riding, arts and crafts, dance and bowling. There is also a sensory room which can provide massage, aromatherapy or therapeutic exercises.
As our care is person-centred, we try to accommodate for requests made by citizens, for example suggestions made regarding activities which they would like to take part in.
Transport: We can facilitate transport to and from the centre, for which there is a charge. There is car parking available for visitors to the centre.
Personal care: We provide personal care to those who require it, in a dignified and respectful manner. All our staff are fully trained in this area of care.
