Our day service supports the social needs for older people living in the community by enabling them to spend regular or one off days at Fairfield. We call it the Fairfield Social Club, where people who live alone can spend some time at Fairfield, meeting with people of a similar age and taking part in social activities.
Attending the Social Club helps to relieve the loneliness and isolation of people living on their own and assists elderly people in maintaining their independence. The Social Club can help people to remain in their own home for longer by giving their main carers regular respite break.
Social Club visitors partake of everything that makes up a typical day at Fairfield. They are encouraged to join in with the morning and afternoon social activities, enjoy morning coffee and afternoon tea, chat to other residents, read newspapers or enjoy a hobby or even rekindle old interests. A home cooked two-course lunch is served in the dining room, which gives an opportunity for mealtime conversations. Members of the Fairfield Social Wellbeing Team will be on hand to support and assist when necessary.
Depending on the day of the week, Social Club visitors can take advantage of the availability of a hairdresser, podiatry, manicure and physiotherapy services on site.
The Social Club is open from 10am to 4pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday by prior arrangement. We write a brief plan with Social Club visitors on arrival so that we understand their likes and dislikes, life events, medical history, medications and allergies.
One off or regular attendance at our Social Club can sometimes be a prelude to planned respite breaks for longer periods at Fairfield. Part and multi-day packages are also available. Details and our charges for the Social Cub, are available on request.
