Once your referral has been processed by the Western Trust we will visit you at your home and ensure we have all the information we need to be able to support you or your family member within our Day Care setting.  We will provide you with your own personal care plan and review it regularly.

We have an experienced and caring team of staff and volunteers who work hard to make Day Care an enjoyable and comfortable place for members.  They will encourage you to get involved and get to know everyone in the day care setting.  We also provide a nutritious and tasty meal every day.  All staff are trained, supervised and are NISCC registered and expected to adhere to their Standards of Conduct and Practice.  Volunteers are a valuable part of our service and are also provided with supervision and training opportunities appropriate to their role.
