Cartref Day Centre

Located adjacent to our Station Road Llanishen Home, Cartref has a new day facility which offers care and companionship to people over the age of 55 with or without a diagnosis of Dementia or Alzheimer's.  Our qualified staff are trained to offer support to those living with a diagnosis as well as to those who may simply benefit from companionship and social interaction, improving both physical and mental well being as well as cognitive impairment.

 The day centre has the advantage of easy access to the main body of the home enabling us to offer personal care on an individual basis as necessary.   A wide variety of activities and outings  are scheduled  daily and include Tai Chi and Yoga sessions, in house entertainers, crafts, trips to local shops etc.  

Our kitchens offer home cooked, nutritious meals, and snacks and hot or cold drinks are available throughout the day.  

Our support also extends to those family members who may feel the need for a brief respite from their caring role, for whatever reason.  They can be safe in the knowledge that their loved one is being given the care they need whilst enjoying new experiences and making new friends.

Bookings are flexible and can be made for either a full day, half day or a couple of hours.

Cartref is a not-for-profit organisation. The Board of Trustees, all volunteers with professional backgrounds, are resonsible for the overall management of the Charity and meet on a monthly basis.
