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 has 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.  


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

Admissions Policy

Victoria House 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.

My mother visits this day centre Monday - Friday and is well looked after by the manager and her staff on a daily basis. The day centre caters for my mother's needs and she is also picked up and brought home. A very good day centre with plenty going on for the clients.
