Skegness Day Centre

A BRIEF HISTORY

Skegness Day Centre is an independent charity which operates from a purpose built, building, sited within the grounds of Skegness hospital and is approved by the local authority for the provision of Day Care Services.

All staff are qualified to NVQ or higher in care for the elderly and frail and regularly attend refresher and development courses.

The centre opens between 9 am and 4 pm Monday to Friday and can currently offer placements for 45 people a day.

Clients currently either make their own way to the centre, or are collected by the centre s own purpose adapted mini busses with qualified drivers and assistance, we can accommodate wheel chair users.

Tea, coffee and light refreshments are offered throughout the day and a nutritious three course meal is provided at lunch time with a choice of two main courses with vegetarian option, light teas are also available for those who wish to take something home for their tea.

OPPORTUNITIES

There must be many families, living within the catchment area of those who come to holiday in Skegness, who do not take a holiday due to caring for a loved one who is elderly or fail, often these people refuse place loved ones in respite care facilities and as a result never take a holiday.

I believe there is an opportunity to offer these families the chance to take a break by offering day services where the cared for person could come to Skegness Day Centre while the rest of the family pursue more normal holiday activities in the day time knowing their love one is being well cared for and entertained, the family could reform in the late afternoon early evening.

Members of Skegness East Coast and Wolds Hospitality Association (SECWHA) and Butlins Holiday Resort are supporting this initiative.by having accommodation available that is suitable for families who are accompanied with elderly/frail relatives.

There could also be the opportunity for a local Home Care Company (Wallnut Care) if needed, to provide services to the elderly/frail person if the family wanted to go out in the evening and the elderly/frail person did not wish to go with them and needed extra services.

The concept of the provision of child minding services is well established in the holiday industry and the making of provisions for the elderly and/or frail is no more than an extension of that provision, all be it with the need for different skill sets in the staff providing the services, many of the accommodation places available already have the minor adaptations already fitted.
