Daybreak Oxford

Daybreak Dementia Clubs are about empowering people to live with, through and beyond dementia by bringing together professional help, communities of support and respite care.

Founded 1991

  • Mission statement

    Daybreak is a specialist charity which offers respite for carers and stimulation and support for people living with dementia and memory loss.
    Daybreak Clubs are for anyone affected by dementia. They are places where people are welcome whenever they need us- from just being diagnosed or undergoing treatment.
    Daybreak is about empowering people to live with, through and beyond dementia by bringing together professional help, communities of support and respite care.
    We also welcome family, friends and carers, as they are often deeply affected by dementia too. We know that those who love and look after someone with dementia can feel just as frightened, vulnerable and uncertain
    Each year tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and the figure is rising annually. The good news is that people are living longer but the bad news is that the older you get the more likely you are to suffer from a dementia.
    Latest statistics show that one in four people over 90 are diagnosed with dementia / Alzheimer’s
    Daybreaks helps people with dementia to live as well as possible through a tailored programme designed to stimulate, and also offer a social environment as well as respite care for the carer’s and their families.
    Daybreak clubs act as an antidote to the isolation and despair of a dementia diagnosis. We aim to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their carers.
