Day Services for Older People

Day Services for Older People

 

Day Services

Inverclyde HSCP provide Day services from two Community Hubs, one of these venues is located at Inverkip and the other at Broomhill Hub in the central area of Greenock.  These hubs are used as a base to assist people to socialise and engage in meaningful community activities.

These venues meet the needs of older people with physical disabilities providing good access arrangements and on the one level.  Each location has an allocated room dedicated for Day Service users.  This provides a safe environment bringing people together in a relaxed setting to enjoy the company of others and to enjoy planned group activities.  

The service provides personalised care and assistance with maintaining and or developing new skills.
A wide range of activities, outings and links with other community services are provided, some of these include.

 

  • Fitness & Wellbeing
  • Learning how to use technology -Computer / tablet Skills / Skyping.
  • Theme Days
  • Hairdressing & Beauty
  • Musical entertainment
  • Theatre Trips and Excursions including Football Memories with the Hampden Park experience.

We are open to any new ideas or suggestions. 

Refreshments are provided throughout the day with a two course lunch provided there is a small cost for the lunch, it is currently £2.75.

Transport to and from service user’s homes to the community Hub is provided by the service with an escort.

If you have an assessed need, Self-Directed Support (SDS) gives you the choice of four options to help you organize your support. SDS is about helping people who need support to have as much choice and control as possible over how their support is planned and provided.

To access this service you will require an assessment of need, you should contact Inverclyde Access First.

 

Outreach Day Service

This is a new development of individualised support delivered through the building based day Services.  This will enable service users to have greater choice and flexibility helping to facilitate how and where people wish to have a Day service.  People’s aspirations and reasons for support can be met successfully either within a building based venue, their local community and or within their own home.

The service is registered by the Care Inspectorate.
