The provision of day care is normally seen as respite for individuals that are looking for additional support throughout the day. This often tends to be a great way of getting respite from the daily routine that either individuals requiring care or the family’s providing it experience. The social aspect of day care is one of the main reasons that someone might consider coming into care. Having the constraints that many elderly face, whether that be of isolation, inability to carry out basic care, or having working families that may not always be available during a working day. There are many reasons to consider Day Care, as it is a great solution to promoting independence and quality of life without the need to surrender life at home. There is a whole host of services offered with day care other than the social aspect of getting out of the house. We are able to arrange transport either on the care homes specifically designed minibus with disabled access, or a local taxi firm.
