Tapestry Day Club
A high-quality social club providing a welcome break
for older people with dementia and respite for their carers
We offer stimulating day support in small groups for people living in social isolation and with early-stage dementia in the comfort and safe environment of our hosts’ family homes.
For people living with dementia, large community centres can be overwhelming and create anxiety. By limiting group sizes, we aim to give guests the time and space to form lasting friendships, feel at ease and be valued. Our days are about focusing on the abilities of our guests – not their inabilities – to gain confidence, become energised, re-engage and find their voices.
Our guests benefit from an imaginative and sociable day with a delicious home-cooked, two-course meal. All our hosts are carefully vetted and their homes risk-assessed. They are trained and have the qualifications needed in order to provide the highest standard of support. Transport is part of our service and therefore our hosts’ cars are insured for business use.
We understand that meeting new people might be unsettling. Therefore we welcome guests’ carers to join us for a coffee on the first day. We are also happy for guests to come for a trial day to see if we are the right support service.
