Day care and activities for adults and older people

Information on what daytime activities are available for adults and older people, your nearest day centre, whether you need your own transport and how to pay for, and access, these activities.

Where can I find information on day care centres in the East Riding?

The East Riding Community and Care Services directory details:

  • all council owned day care centres
  • the care services and specialisms provided at each venue
  • the facilities available to day care visitors.

 

Find care homes in our East Riding Community and Care Services directory on our Your Life, Your Way website.

How do I know if attending a day care centre is right for me?

Day centres provide support for people who:

  • are older and have complex needs
  • have a learning disability
  • have a physical disability
  • have a mental health need or condition.

 

They are an opportunity for you to:

  • meet with others 
  • participate in a range of social and leisure activities 
  • receive personal care.

 

If you are a carer, they give you an opportunity to take a break from your caring role. You can find out more about ways to take a break from your caring role on our Your Life, Your Way website.

When are the day care centres open?

Most day care centres are open during the day from Monday to Friday, except on bank holidays. Some also run activities in the evening.

Please contact your chosen day centre directly for information about specific activities and when they take place.

You can find your local day care centre on our Your Life, Your Way website.

How do I access day care services?

Day care services are provided as part of a care and support plan. This is created as part of an assessment process to find out if you qualify for care and support.

You can find out more about arranging adult care on our dedicated adult social care website - Your Life, Your Way.

Do I have to pay for day care services?

Day care is a service we charge for. If you qualify for care and support from us, you should expect to pay something towards your day care services unless your assets, savings and income are very low.

You can find out more about our service costs and/or how to arrange adult care on our dedicated adult social care website - Your Life, Your Way.

Is any transport available to get to and from a day centre?

If you have had a needs assessment and attending a day centre is part of your care and support plan, we may also be able to help you to get there.

Find out more about arranging adult care on our dedicated adult social care website - Your Life, Your Way.

Are there any other activities available in my local area?

There are a range of activities available in East Riding that may be suitable for you to get involved in. You can learn more about local community activities on the East Riding Health and Wellbeing website.
