Dementia day care centre in Cambridgeshire

Based on national statistics, there are around 1,700 over-65s with dementia living in their own homes in Peterborough and its environs. For their carers – most frequently loved ones and family members – it’s therefore good to know that professional day care support in a modern, welcoming setting is on hand. Purpose-built in 2015 as part of Cherry Blossom Care Home, the adult day centre offers a warm, welcoming setting in which to make new friends and enjoy a range of stimulating activities.

The centre is located in Warwick Road, just south of the Peterborough suburb of Werrington, and can be booked at a reasonable day rate. For families looking after an elderly relative living alone or with them in their own home, the day care centre offers one-off or regular respite care. For elderly individuals, it’s a great chance to get out, socialise and enjoy a change of scenery.
