Respite Days

Respite Day Support with Memory Matters

For a long time we have been waiting to be able to provide respite for people with more moderate dementia.

To begin with we will be offering four places on a Tuesday and Wednesday at Priory Bungalow, Bodmin, Cornwall and 8 places at Moments Cafe and Dementia Hub in Plymouth.

our staff ratio is high and we pride ourselves in providing time, meaningful activity and human connection that matters.

Priory Bungalow is decorated in 1950's/60s decor right down to the working record player.

We also have a spacious, purpose built respite room at our City Centre Cafe and Dementia hub in New Georfe Street, Pymouth.

Our respite day care places provide a more relaxed day for those that may not be able to concentrate on focused group work or for those that Cognitive Therapy does not suit.

The day care days are more focused on going with the flow, enjoying socialising and reminiscing as well as getting involved being in the moment!.

We at Memory Matters are passionate about supporting people to live well with dementia.

Our team understand dementia and its challenges are used to being creative in finding ways to support people as individuals.
With a variety of props and reminsence boxes at their finger tips our team are used to creating great days. Whether it's armchair trips around the world using the wonder of technology, a sing song of an old favourite, or the sharing of good old story over a nice brew, our team will help people to find magic in themoment.

If you or a loved one are self funding you can self refer. If you use personal budget you must ensure there is a set amount for day care in your budget.

We are happy to take referrals from health and social care.

Following referral, a manager will carry out an assessment to ensure we can meet your needs. This will take place either at Priory Bungalow or at the Dementia Hub in Plymouth.

Day Care places need to be booked in advance so that we are able to plan staffing accordingly.

The current cost:

£35 for 1/2 day

£65 full day (includes lunch)
