Horrill Day Care Centre
Day care can help you to care
We specialise in the care of people who are physically and mentally frail
Age Concern Hampshire provides day care for older people at day centres throughout Hampshire. We have 25 years experience and adopt up to date practices of care which meet quality standards.
Service users are older people limited by physical or mental frailty, who are assessed by Adult Services as needing day care and who meet their criteria for inclusion. The need for carer respite is also recognised.
Our day care centres depend on dedicated volunteers as well as trained staff. If you are interested in volunteering either contact the day care centre direct or see our volunteering pages.

A carer told us:
No-one knows, other than us as carers, what a relief it is that your loved one is in safe and caring hands, allowing us to enjoy a few vital hours.
We feel so free, after looking after our mother for 24 hours a day, to leave her for a few hours in the knowledge its with caring and responsible people.
I have time for myself, knowing that Ted is in a safe place, being well looked after.
Our service users tell us:
A lifesaver. I look forward to it so much because it gives me the chance to take part in activities and to meet my friends.
I wouldn't be without it. As we arrive in the bus, I know that we are in for a cheering and interesting day.
It is the highlight of my week: everyone is so friendly and I always feel that nothing is too much trouble.
