Day Services & Supported Employment
Our Day Services are based in the heart of the local community and offer a great range of activities and support designed to keep people healthy and well for as long as possible. They are inclusive and open to all adults, regardless of age or disability.
Our buildings and facilities are accessible to people of all abilities, and our Day Services offer a range of community based services, and community projects.
Private Clients & Respite
All of our Day Services accept private clients, meaning that you do not need to be referred to our Day Services via the local authority. Services include social interaction, a range of fun and engaging activities, person centred and strength based activities, support in access to the community, meal provision, health and wellbeing.
All Tricuro day services offer daily (or in some cases part day) respite attendance to clients to enable carers to have a break during the day or to attend their own appointments, for example. This can be on a regular or ‘ad hoc’ basis, dependent on the availability at the chosen service. The clients can join in any of the activities arranged on their day or days of attendance, to meet their own wishes, needs and preferences. Support with personal care and eating and drinking can also be provided.
All our day services provide guidance, advice and signposting to carers on request. Many have their own carers groups which meet regularly, where members talk, share experiences and support each other and guest speakers are often invited to discuss topics relevant to carers.
We welcome clients who receive financial support from their local council and those who are privately funding their care and support.
