Our Respite and Day Care Centre was built in 1835 and is situated within the grounds of the Residential Home. The Centre is well furnished and decorated and provides a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Individuals supported in the Centre have access to all the activities and therapies within our Residential Home including; aromatherapy, health and wellbeing sessions, visiting entertainers and social outings. They also enjoy spending time outdoors in our extensive grounds with a cultivated walled garden and seating areas.

Our staff team provide the unique care they need in order to provide the best outcome for the individual.” Catherine, Respite & Day Care Centre Manager

The Centre also offers help, support, care and understanding to families who are under stress and emotional pressure from caring for the individuals with mental health and alcoholism. We are planning an extensive upgrade to the building to better meet the needs of the residents and improve their environment. The planned upgrade will include structural alterations, roof structure repairs, replacement of windows, installation of new 6 ensuite bathrooms, new internal walls and partitions, a new heating system, an operational sluice, new wall and floor finishings, decoration, and electrical installations.

We need to raise £518,255 for the upgrade. We have raised £70,313 to date and the first phase of the project is now complete with a new kitchen area where individuals can socialise and learn cooking skills. The upgrade will be carried out in phases as we receive the funds and we aim to have the building completed in the next two years.

We would be very grateful for your help to raise funds to upgrade the Centre. To find out about making a donation please call 01786 812421 or email info@williamsimpsons.org.uk
