A new Dementia and Alzheimers day care centre is opening in Crawley.

Memories Day Care is having an open day on Friday 13th October from 10am to 4pm.

Memories also offer Dementia care, recognising the impact this has on not only the individual but also their families, friends and loved ones.

All of our staff receive comprehensive training specifically designed for their company which enables them to understand the challenges and provide bespoke one to one care.

There is also a pick up / drop off service that they provide at no extra cost, this is a door to door service ensuring that all our clients get home safely.

Pick up will be between 9:00 and 10:30 and drop off between 15:30 and 17:00 We also offer a hourly service. This offers a shorter period of care if needed or allows people to try the centre and settle in slowly. Family members are also welcomed to stay and help with this.
