Welcome to Devonshire Dementia Day Centre
Looking for an exclusive, unique, safe and welcoming day centre for a loved one living with dementia?
Maybe your family member is feeling lonely, confused and anxious. Maybe you need to run errands and need a minder because you feel anxious to leave them alone at home. Or maybe you just need a well-deserved break.
We pride ourselves on offering a warm, welcoming, caring and relaxed atmosphere combined with a professionally trained care team to keep your loved one safe and happy. Visit us and experience it for yourself.
Entrust us with the care of your family member or friend during the day so they can enjoy some stimulating company, activities, therapies, hot nutritious meals, afternoon tea or just a stroll in our sensory dementia friendly garden. In our experience this helps to relieve some of the complex feelings and moods experienced by people living with dementia.
Meanwhile you can have a well-earned rest or run errands that you have put off, because you feel anxious to leave them alone at home.
We are always happy to share our 30 years of experience and offer advice and support for you as a carer.
We offer this exclusive service seven days a week, from 9am to 5pm daily for a minimum of four hours, an 8am drop off can be arranged. We serve the local areas of Kingston, New Malden, Richmond, Wimbledon and Worcester Park in Surrey.
Loneliness can be hard to deal with, but coming to spend the day at our day centre can help turn things around and even create new friendships!
Free Singing group and coffee morning
Every Wednesday, 10.30am - 12.30pm
Please bring your loved one and join us for a free singing group and coffee morning held every Wednesday between 10.30am and 12.30pm. It is just a social occasion enabling carers and people living with dementia to get out in a safe environment and make some new friends.
Why a singing group?
Neuroscience has shown that singing in a group is like a super-drug! Singing helps the brain release endorphins and oxytocin which make us feel healthier and happier. When we are singing in a group our hearts all magically start beating together. You do not need to be able to hold a note – just come and join in the fun.
