Review of Community Based Older People Day Opportunities Services

Closed 5 Nov 2018

Opened 15 Oct 2018

Overview

Warwickshire County Council is reviewing the community based Older People Day Opportunities Services that it provides. These are provided to people aged 65 years and over within their local community, this can often be in a building based setting such as a day centre.  We currently have seven services:

  • Waverley Day Centre
  • inTouch Home Care
  • New Directions Rugby Ltd.
  • Khair in the Community (Nuneaton Muslim Society),
  • Satkaar Asian Elders Day Care Services
  • Shri Hindu Gujarati Samaj (Anmol)
  • Sikh Mission Day Centre 

The services support older people and their relatives/carers to access a day service and give them the opportunity to mix with similar aged people.  The services offer activities to help support individuals' health and wellbeing and can also provide an opportunity for carers, family members or friends to have a break from the caring role.

The council is undertaking this review to find out if services are meeting the needs of those that are using them and their relatives/carers.  This includes finding out whether older people in Warwickshire feel part of their local community and are not isolated.  Loneliness and social isolation is a significant and growing issue for older people in particular, we want to gather your thoughts on the topic and how we can tackle this issue.

We are seeking the views of people that are currently using the council's community based Older People Day Opportunities services and their families, carers, as well as the wider public who wish to contribute their thoughts on how the community based Older People Day Opportunities service offer could be refined and improved.
