DAY CENTRES

Feeling isolated and lonely?  Why not come along to one of our Day Centres for the Elderly in Bexhill?  Our Centres provide somewhere for older people to visit, meet up with others, join in activities, enjoy entertainment and occasional trips out.  Whether you like knitting, art and crafts, a game of dominoes or just a good old natter with friends, one of our Centres will be able to accommodate your needs.

Each Centre is run by a team of volunteers headed by an Organiser.  Our transport will collect you from your home and deliver you safely back to your door at the end of the afternoon.  The buses each have a tail lift to enable easy access for those with difficulties.  Morning refreshments, a two course cooked lunch and afternoon tea are provided.  The cost is currently £18.00 per session.  To book your place at one of Day Centres or for further information please call our Day Centre Co-ordinator Angela van Aalst on 01424 215116.

 Quotes from our Day Centre Attendees

It has given me the opportunity to meet people since moving to Bexhill.  I always look forward to coming, and having the transport makes it easy. Betty
I have been coming for 14 years, and enjoy the lunches and the company.  We sometimes go out to lunch,   or a short trip which I enjoy very much. Marjorie
I enjoy coming, as I have company, a good lunch, occasional outings and the opportunity to meet nice people.  We play cards and group games and enjoy a good chin wag over a cuppa. Pat
All the helpers and drivers are very kind and helpful.  We enjoy jokes and laughs, and have a nice lunch.  I look forward to Thursdays. Vera
I look forward to coming, and made some friends. Jessie
I like the friendly company and really enjoy the trips out and when we have entertainment.  We have cake when there is a birthday, everybody is helpful. Maggie
Why stay at home alone when you can enjoy the company?  Door to door transport makes it easy.  Company and   lunch is enjoyable.  I look forward to Thursday it’s my day. Ivy

    Do pensioners have to live within a Bexhill post code to attend the Day Centre ? Because I was told you have to be in a Bexhill post code to use driver services.

    Thanks, Kim Hicks

      Hi Kim, Yes people do need to live in the TN39 or TN40 postcode area to use the Day Centre. Unfortunately our Charity is only for people living within the Bexhill area.

    Is there anything for people on Christmas day to attend? I have a patient That will be on her own on Christmas day

      Bay House in Middlesex Road have a couple of free spaces for Xmas lunch but the client would need to arrange their own transport there and back. This is the only event that we know of in Bexhill.

    Many thanks………Jennie.
