Day Care at St Martins

Day care at St Martins in Southend‑on‑Sea

We provide a day care service at St Martins Care Home for the elderly community who need our services for a range of reasons including loneliness, immobility and/or a range of more complex conditions such as early stage dementia.

Our day care service enables clients to:

  • Remain independent for as long as possible in their homes, secure in the knowledge that they can stay with us should they need to.
  • Spend the day in a holistic day care environment that complements their life at home, respecting their individual rights, temperaments, personalities and behaviours.
  • Get regular physical and mental stimulation through the provision of beneficial activities appropriate to their needs with others who are in a similar stage of life.
  • Experience home-away-from-home care from 9-4 in a safe, secure and comfortable environment.

The day care service is open 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. We have a maximum capacity of 8 service users, supervised by up to 2 members of staff.
