Thame & District Day Centre
Thame and District Day Centre provides a much loved and valued service for the elderly community of Thame and surrounding villages.
Within South Oxfordshire, the population is much older than average, creating challenges for access to services.
The Day Centre supports the elderly by providing a safe and happy environment for our members to socialise, meet up with friends, make new ones, enjoy a hot two course meal plus entertainment and various activities.
We are open On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 60 elderly members attend each week and we are sometimes the only continuity in their lives. We see them every week and can identify changes in their behaviour or health and can act on this often negating the need for them to enter an acute hospital setting.
Due to the cuts in funding of some services and Day Centres within our local area we are working hard to secure other income streams in order to support this vital service and ensure its sustainability for the future.
We are accessible and affordable and in many cases we are able to give carers a much needed break.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
