Sligo Day Care at Home
The Day Care at Home service provides an interim alternative model of care and support to our clients and families while our face-to-face Day Care Centres remain temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 health crisis. The ASI is engaged with the HSE to reopen our day care centres as soon as possible. In the meantime, the Day Care at Home service, which was first rolled out in August 2020, is a way of delivering a day care experience to clients in their home, while also allowing their family carer to have a break. It is based on providing social activity based care with minimum personal care. This can include music sessions, reminiscence therapy, arts & crafts, gentle exercises, conversation, companionship and recreational activities. As with our other services, it is dementia-specific, person-centred care and our trained staff work with clients to ensure that we meet their needs. The service has been recognised as a highly valuable service to people living with dementia and their family carers during the pandemic. Please contact the local manager to discuss referral and availability.
