Renfrew Day Centre

Renfrew 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, physical and health care needs.

We offer support with personal care. We encourage clients to enjoy company and take advantage of the many activities/social events and services which we provide. These include:

  • outings;
  • group activities (quiz games, music);
  • Occupational Therapy
  • District Nurses
  • Physiotherapy
  • library service; and
  • support and advice to carers.

We provide tea and snacks on arrival, lunch, 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 of additional services such as hairdressing or chiropody.
