Apna Ghar


Established in 2001, Apna Ghar provides day care services to elders or, as we like to call them, “the young at heart” of the local community.
Apna Ghar provides support to residents of the borough who are seeking opportunities for interaction, socialisation and active participation in a comfortable and supportive environment to overcome their social isolationand improve their mental and physical wellbeing.


The service users self organise and shape the service to promote independence. This gives users a sense of ownership and pride in the service they receive. Activities are arranged for users to provide additional support.

 


Apna Ghar service users take part in recreational and creative activities, healthy living initiatives (including exercise and healthy eating), plus opportunities to debate and discuss issues and to socialise. These continuously change dependant on the needs of the users; including (but not limited to):

  • Day trips
  • Arts & crafts
  • Sewing
  • Cards
  • Armchair exercises
  • Massage

Apna Ghar day care centre also provides access to information, advice and guidance from professional service providers. We can also help with respite if you are a carer.
