Wisden Day Centre

Your Care in Our Hands

Situated in the North Hertfordshire area, Wisden Day Centre is a specialist day centre for older people, including those living with dementia. Our clients come from Stevenage and the surrounding villages such as Benington.

As well as gardens, the day centre has sensory areas for our clients to enjoy.

Aims and Objectives

To provide the support needed to clients, and their carers, to enable them to remain living in their homes

To create an environment where people with specific needs can be assisted to improve their quality of life

To create a community amongst the clients who use the day centre

To provide a wide array of activities

To seek out relevant ways to integrate clients into the wider community

Activities

At Wisden our philosophy is centred on activity based care and our enthusiastic activity coordinator and staff actively seek out and listen to residents to find out about their hobbies and plan accordingly. As a result, there is a wide range of activities, such as:

Group discussions

Arts and crafts

Games

Gentle Exercise

Meals

As well as having a cup of a tea and a chat, our day centre offers meals to those who attend. Our catering team prepares meals from fresh produce to ensure that all those in our care receive a nutritious and balanced diet, and special dietary needs can be catered for. We like to involve our clients throughout the year in assisting with menu changes. Sometimes the meals may reflect a theme or activity for variety

Health and Personal Services

Whilst you are here we can arrange for a chiropodist and/or optician to visit for very reasonable prices.

The Day centre also uses Wisden Court’s hairdressing services; should you wish to have your hair done whilst you are here, please arrange this in advance with the hairdressers.

We also provide a Bathing Service for a small fee, although these facilities are always quite busy, so please give us as much advanced notice as possible.

Staffing

All of our staff undertake cultural training and development; with a particular focus on the needs of people living with dementia.

Admissions Policy

Wisden Day Centre seeks to be open and available to all of the local community. We accept referrals from private individuals and Adult Care Services. Please Contact us for further discussion and to arrange a tour of our facilities.

ACS will assess your transport needs under the Assisted Transport Policy and you may be entitled to a service from HCS Transport but not all people will have transport provided based on the assessment.  If, however, you are self-funding your visits to the day centre, you will need to make private transport arrangements to pick you up to and from the day centre.
