Providing activities for people with dementia and peace of mind for their carers

Up to 50 people with dementia from Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland attend our Newcastle Day Centre each day.

As well as enjoying lunch in our Restaurant, they can take part in lots of indoor activities, including arts and crafts, cookery and baking, singing and dancing and armchair exercise, carpet bowls and pool.

There is a cinema room, showing films, favourite TV programmes and sporting events, a fully-equipped hair and beauty salon and a lounge. We also provide a quiet sensory area for those who just want to enjoy some rest and relaxation.

Our fully trained and experienced staff can also provide personal care, such as bathing and are trained to prompt or administer medication, if required.

Centre Facilities

When the weather is fine, people can spend time in our beautiful sensory garden, with raised beds where they can enjoy the therapeutic value of tending and growing their own plants.

The Centre has a large restaurant and dining room. A day in the centre includes a nutritious, hot or cold, two-course, home-made lunch and mid-morning and afternoon snacks.

If you need help to get to the centre, we can provide transport to and from your door to the centre in one of our dementia-friendly minibuses.

Our Newcastle day centre is independently monitored by Adult Social Services within the three local authorities of Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland.

Opening hours:
Monday to Friday 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.

We are open throughout the year, including Bank Holidays (except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day).
