Haringey Irish Day Care & Luncheon Club

SERVICES FOR OLDER PEOPLE

 

We are reaching out to older people in the local community and adjoining boroughs to use our day care and lunch club services. We have professional staff who provide a hearty welcome in a friendly and warm atmosphere. We also have an experienced team of trained volunteers who are essential to the work of our services and ably support the permanent team.

Assistance is available to people over 50 years of age who need extra support, to regain and maintain their independence, to live a healthy and active life. We provide stimulating activities, entertainment and companionship to people who may otherwise be house-bound or socially isolated and excluded.

A qualified chef provides a substantial freshly cooked meal, which consists of a well-balanced diet, with support to promote healthy eating. Any special dietary needs will always be met.

Mrs E. suffered from depression and social isolation, she was reserved in her manner and suffered from panic attacks when she first commenced at our Day Care Service. We encouraged her to interact with other users and the team helped her to participate in the various activities. She gradually improved and regained her confidence. Presently she is cheerful, looks forward to attending, she finds it easy to converse and no longer suffer from panic attacks.
