Chelsea Court Place in London has launched its day care service for people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
The Memory Club and Day Care Service offer members the opportunity to socialise, participate in stimulating activities whilst being cared for by a team of dementia-trained professionals.
Chairman Laurence Geller CBE said: “This pioneering new day club is set to change the way in which we care for people with dementia and we are thrilled to be launching the concept at Chelsea Court Place.
“Our vision is to provide a happy, safe environment, using the latest research, technology and techniques to enrich the lives of our members and carers.”
Chelsea Court offers 5-star hotel services to full-time residents as well as club members on a daily or weekly basis.
The home’s team offer advice and training to carers and families on delivering care. Daily activities at the facility include language classes, pet therapy, cooking, music therapy, exercise and bespoke excursions.
General manager Christine Valentine-Bunce added: “Carers perform a vital role in caring for people with dementia. With an estimated 670,000 carers of people with dementia in the UK with this figure continuing to grow alongside the rise in new dementia diagnosis, we are mindful of the huge tasks undertaken by carers.
“We are passionate about providing support to carers through our Memory Club and Day Care Service, offering respite as well as valuable training and advice to ease the pressure.”
