About Us

Who I Am?


My name is Andy Gill and I am the founder of a new and innovative service which provides daytime activities for people living with dementia,  or anyone who feels they may benefit from joining in.

 With my background in elderly care rehabilitation and more recently as a home carer who primarily works to help keep dementia clients in their own home, I have extensive experience and knowledge in this field. On a personal note, in  2016 my wife was diagnosed with a rare form of vascular dementia and I am therefore acutely aware of how difficult life can be in trying to support  a loved one and give them the best life has to offer.

My Goal


My aim, along with my experienced team, is to provide a safe and welcoming environment, where your partner, relative or friend can relax and join in activities which suit their abilities.


 This will provide you with the reassurance that when we collect your partner, relative or friend, you can go about your daily business worry free, until they are returned.

Activity days

During our weekly sessions we will endeavour to explore all of the activities listed below, with the aim of stimulating and involving everyone in some way. 

We will provide buffet snacks as well as hot and cold drinks throughout the day. Clients are also welcome to bring their own packed lunches.

Our activity support staff will work in small groups of 4 to 5 clients and rotate the activities to suit all.


We will also COLLECT and DROP OFF locally for only £4.00*


What you need to bring? 

We would need you to bring any products that you would usually need during the day,  e.g incontinence pads,  wipes, etc. The online form that you complete whilst booking your sessions will give us an insight to any personal care needs. 

There is a separate room in the venue available for personal care.

Highlights

People all over the world join hands
Start a love train, love train
People all over the world join hands
Start a love train, love train
The next stop that we make will be soon
Tell all the folks in Russia, and China too
Don't you know that it's time to get on board
And let this train keep on riding, riding on through!

Our first session!

"Ain't that a kick in the head?" The room was completely black I hugged her and she hugged back. Like the sailor said quote: "Ain't that a hole in a boat?" My head keeps spinnin' I go to sleep and keep grinnin' If this is just the beginnin' My life is gonna be beautiful.

something for all
