At Hampton Centre, Hampton Pier Avenue, Herne Bay.
This centre opens seven days a week 9am to 4pm. The purpose of the Hampton Day Centre is to provide a centre where older people who are housebound through frailty can meet with others of a similar age group for social interaction and where their self-respect is maintained, their privacy respected and their opinions valued. A home cooked meal and transport is provided. Those attending can also use the other services on offer at the centre;
• Bathing, Hairdressing, Chiropody, Laundry, Advice and Information, Exercise groups, Activities, Social functions and much more.
• At Hazell Nevill Centre Mortimer Street, Herne Bay.
The first floor of this centre is open from Monday to Saturday each week. The centre has been developed to provide specialist day care to a high standard for older people suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Stimulation and therapy are an integral part of the care provided by experienced staff in pleasant homely surroundings. Places can be purchased privately although most of the people attending are at present funded by Kent County Council Social Services.
On the ground floor of the Hazell Nevill Centre there is a lunch club open 3 days each week for older people to enjoy a home- cooked meal in comfortable surroundings at a reasonable cost.
