Service users are normally picked up between 9.30am and 10.30am and taken home between 3pm and 4pm. Our transport is wheelchair accessible and has a tail lift if anyone has difficulty with steps. Our buildings are also wheelchair accessible.
There is a programme of activities that include exercises to music by a trained therapist, reminiscence based activities, outings with our accessible transport, entertainers, carpet bowls and this is reviewed regularly with input from our service users. Being able to mix with their own peer group is one of the most beneficial aspects of coming to day care. Each service user has a personal plan stating what their needs are and what they would like to achieve by coming to day care to enable them to make the most of their day.
Whilst it states we take referrals from Edinburgh City we are not a citywide service. We cover North West Rural Edinburgh which includes South Queensferry, Dalmeny, Kirkliston, Newbridge, Ratho Village and Station.
