Dementia Day Care


A great introduction to what life in a care home is really like

Considering moving into a care home is a daunting step which most elderly people will resist as long as they can. They fear losing their independence, identity, freedom and dignity.  

The thing is, the comment we get most often once someone has actually moved in is "I wish we'd done it much sooner". That's because life in a good care home is actually great fun. There are things to do, people to talk to, entertainments and a general buzz you just don't get at home on your own.

Using our Day Care Service is a great, low key way for your loved one to experience what life in the home is really like without the commitment of moving in. 

Plus it's a really good way to take the pressure off you for a day if you're caring for them at home. Wouldn't it be great to have just a little time to yourself where you can do exactly what you want without worrying?

Excellent care from all the staff, very caring and understanding

Ellen D Daughter of Resident

Excellent care from all the staff, very caring and understanding. Mum's personality has changed considerably since coming to Cavendish in a good way, she socializes very well which she didn't do before. By far the best care home I've come across in Gloucester.

Spend the day, make new friends and have fun

With our extensive range of activities and an environment designed for people with dementia, Cavendish Care Home feels very much like a social club and community for those who are living with dementia.

The atmosphere is friendly and active, warm and welcoming, relaxing and caring. So your loved one can come and stay with us for the day, feel free to be themselves and join in activities such as painting, drawing, gardening, or just having a good natter with new found friends.

If they like pampering (and who doesn't!) they can come for a hairdressing, massage or aromatherapy session, or a good soak in a lovely hot bath! Just tell us what they like and we'll do our best to provide it for you.

Great value and everything included

Here's what's included in our day care service:

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Tea Time Meals
  • Snacks and drinks in between meals
  • All the activities & entertainment that are on for that day (click here for a full list of the activities we provide)
  • Relaxing hot bath or shower
  • Full time care from our expert staff
  • Full use of all our facilities, including our new sensory room
  • Friendship and companionship

The cost is just £60 per day

That's great value. Just compare it with a stay at a hotel. You'll be lucky to get a decent room for that price. You certainly won't get all 3 main meals provided, unlimited snacks and drinks, entertainment and activities or full time care.

Free taster day

Everyone who has used our day care service so far, loves it. We're convinced your loved one will love it too so we'd like to offer them a taster day Completely Free. Just call us on 01452 521896 or click here to email us to arrange a suitable date and then come along for the day to see what it's like. 

There's no pressure and no further obligation so if they don't like it, that's no problem and it's cost you nothing.  

What to do now

If you'd like to arrange a free Day Care Taster Day simply call us on 01452 521896 or click here to email us to arrange it.

If you'd like to see the home first yourself to make sure it's what you're looking for we'd like to invite you on a personal guided tour. We'll take you for a good look around and afterwards you can talk to whomever you please and wander round yourself as much as you like.

To arrange your personal guided tour please call or email us. Or feel free to call in anytime for a look around without an appointment, if you'd prefer. The kettle's always on and we'd love to meet you.

P.S. Cavendish Care Home is very popular and day care places are limited. To avoid disappointment please call to ensure a place is available before taking a long journey to visit the home for a look around.
