“Our centre is for clients who require a higher level of treatment and intervention to maintain and improve their physical and mental health needs, providing a sociable, stimulating and relaxing environment.

"We also offer a 24 hour respite service to those that require the support within their own home enabling them to remain in a comfortable, safe and familiar environment. We are able to also hire out our facilities during the evening and weekends for those that can not or do not access the day centre.”
