Day Club - Activities

  • VO98366


Our Day Services offer carers an opportunity to take a break from their caring role safe in the knowledge that the person they care for will be well looked after and supported. The day clubs allow the cared for person some time away from their home environment and a chance to meet new people and try new things.

We are looking to gather a highly motivated team of volunteers to assist in facilitating our various activity groups. Activities include board games, quizzes, guest speakers and other activities such as gentle exercise, relaxation techniques, baking, painting and crafts. We also regularly have day trips and holidays for both carers and those they care for.

Organisation aims and objectives

We provide a high standard of care and offer appropriate levels of support for Carers in Perth and Kinross. Giving carers respite we enable those who have a degree of physical and/or mental frailty to remain as independent as possible, to improve their quality of life and to delay possible admission to residential nursing home care.
