Our dad, who was diagnosed with alzheimers six years ago, has been attending the Here4U Day Club for a while now. He still lives at home with mum but life has been getting increasingly difficult and stressful for her. So dad being with new friends at the club has been good for both of them. Mum can now spend the day meeting up with a friend, going shopping, or going out for lunch knowing that dad is being cared for, enjoying new activities and having a cooked lunch. We were a bit worried how dad would cope being away from home and his familar routine but he has settled in well and although he might not remember much about his day, he enjoys his time there as is evidenced by the lovely photos we recieve at the end of each session.
The club has been of huge help to us as a familiy, especially mum, and we feel confident that dad is in a safe and kind environment at the Here4U Club, so much so that he is attending twice a week now, rather than just the one day we had originally planned.
