“Connect For Life” started in October 2016, the dream began to form many years earlier over cups of coffee and chats between Alison and Carolyn. Both worked for the NHS and shared the thought that one day they would like to open a high quality Day Centre for Older People.
Alison and Carolyn had a particular concern for older people, especially those with memory difficulties or dementia who are often isolated, lack confidence or feel unable to go out. Whilst working as a Dementia Support Worker Alison met many carers who were struggling with the challenges of caring for someone with dementia and who were often longing for even a few hours away from their caring role.
- A safe, stimulating environment where older people can make connections with others to improve their well-being.
- Support and respite, particularly to carers of people living with life restricting conditions, including the provision of a safe, supportive environment where the person they care for may be looked after for part of a day.
- Specialist information and support to people affected by memory difficulties and dementia and we work with other agencies to offer more general information and support.
Our long term vision is to provide more of our high quality day support for Oswestry and the surrounding area. We want to enhance an individual’s sense of well being, giving them opportunities to meet with others and build connections that will help them feel valued and listened to, despite the challenges of living with life limiting conditions such as memory loss and dementia.
