This Day Club is a unique opportunity to enjoy good food and companionship, within a fully trained host’s house. Two to five guests will be invited to the host’s house to enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch, whilst enjoying the companionship of others in a similar situation. The Club’s mission is twofold: to support those living in isolation, perhaps feeling socially excluded or experiencing a deterioration in memory and to also provide a day of valuable respite to those carers who look after their loved one (our guest) on a day to day basis.

The Tapestry Day Club aims to create an environment where guests feel supported and cared for, help reduce anxiety, have regular face-to-face contact with others which enables strong relationships to be built, re-gain confidence, enjoy being part of a small group and ultimately remain a valued member of their community.

For more information, please contact us by phone 01403 791020 or email support@tapestrydayclub.co.uk
