For many people getting older means loneliness and isolation. Visitors are rare and restricted mobility can mean it's difficult to venture out to visit family and friends.
Day care at a care home means that they can once again be involved in a real community with friendship, companionship, entertainment and activities.
Similarly caring for an elderly loved one, although rewarding, can also be very tiring and all consuming of your time. Day care at a care home is a great solution as it gives a welcome break for the carer and a welcomed change of scene for the person being cared for.
