Montrose Day Centre

*Montrose Day Centre is currently closed *

Montrose Day Centre provides day care to older people who have been assessed as requiring a service to help them remain in their community and be as independent as possible. The centre caters for older people who have a diagnosis of dementia, or who have a reduced physical capacity.

A typical day in the centre offers varied activities which promote social interaction and aim to meet individual, personal and physical care needs.

We offer support with personal care, for example, hairdressing, chiropody, bathing and shaving. We encourage clients to enjoy company and take advantage of the many activities/social events which we provide. These include:

  • outings;
  • monthly themed celebrations (such as Burns' Day or St Valentine's Day,);
  • group activities (quiz games, music);
  • Occupational Therapy
  • District Nurses
  • Physiotherapy
  • arts and crafts sessions;
  • gardening club;
  • library service; and
  • support and advice to carers.

We provide tea and toast on arrival, lunch and home baking then afternoon tea or juice and biscuits. We cater for all dietary needs. There is a day care charge and a small fee for meals. Staff can tell you how much it will cost, or give you a price list.
