These day centres provide a supportive environment for mental health service users and offer varied leisure, vocational and therapeutic activities.
For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
There are many different exercise classes available for the over 50's in the local area.These are easily accessible and other classes such as yoga and Tai-Chi can also be benefitial.
Lunch Clubs are available to elderly people where they can eat a cut price healthy meal aswell as socialise with other people who attend,who may feel isolated and in need of company.Other activities may also take place at these clubs,so look further to find any local clubs of interest.
