*This service is only available to residents of Lambeth after having had a Community Care Assessment assessment by a Social Worker*

Central Hill Day Centre is a centre for older persons in the borough of Lambeth who need the support of a day centre in order to continue to live at home as well as providing respite for carers.

We provide support for people with various physical and or mental health difficulties associated with getting older. As well as working with people who come to the day centre, the staff team also run a carer’s group for carers, offering support, information and reassurance to them.

We promote a friendly homely atmosphere at the centre where everyone is valued and has opportunities to meet people, participate in various therapeutic and rehabilitative activities and learn new skills or maintain old skills, which will help promote independence.

Activities include:

- community outings

- games

- cooking/baking

- gardening

- mobility exercises

We also run a joint Saturday service once a month at Stockwell Day Centre on Clarence Avenue to support carers who live with service users already attending  day care.

Every 2nd Saturday of the month 9.30am—5.00pm

Subject Definitions

These day centres provide a supportive environment for mental health service users and offer varied leisure, vocational and therapeutic activities.
For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
