Praise for Days! Client testimonials for Days at the Haven
Days at the Haven is our specialist Dementia Day Service, based within the Haven Community Hub on Hamlet Court Road. The service is soon to celebrate it’s first birthday, and to mark the occasion we have been talking to our client’s families about their experiences of the Dementia Service…
Speaking of her husband’s experience at Days at the Haven, Margaret said, “I’m delighted to say John has been attending Days at the Haven since it first opened in summer ‘21 , and indeed he was one of the first clients.
He started off with Wednesdays each week. We had a face-to-face appointment with Pam (Manager) and Sarah (Assistant Manager) prior to starting and straight away we both felt very positive and happy that John would be spending time here and been cared for in a safe environment.
From Wednesday, this led to Friday afternoon and recently Monday morning. We both can’t give the centre enough praise the management , staff, volunteers are so caring , helpful and supportive both to the clients and their loved ones.
John just loves being part of it all, always happy to go and be amongst others. There’s a wonderful amount of activities he gets involved in, such as group activities, music, dancing and art.”
Margaret continues, “What I’ve noticed he leaves very happy and comes home very happy, so obviously this makes me happy!
It gives me great peace of mind to know how well he has settled in and that he is with new friends he has made. I can plan activities for myself, meet-up with friends, go shopping and much more whilst I know he is well cared for.
I would highly recommend the centre and I’m so pleased we found it. It certainly has given us both a much better quality of life.”
