Over Day Centre

Over Day Centre is a purpose-built care facility with qualified staff providing a safe, friendly environment for older people & those living with memory loss in South Cambridgeshire. It provides professional care, social interaction, recreation and friendship. Over Day Centre is for older people and those with memory loss.

After an initial chat over the telephone to discuss interests, needs and requirements, you can book as many or as few sessions at the Centre as you’d like – the more sessions you attend, the more friends you’ll make!

If you live in Bar Hill, Longstanton, Swavesey, Over or Willingham you can arrange to be collected in the accessible minibus and taken to and from the Centre door-to-door. However, anyone from any village in South Cambs can come along if they can arrange their own transport.

On arrival in the morning, you’ll be greeted with refreshments and can then enjoy a wide range of activities including gentle exercise, talks, arts & crafts, music and chat. You can even arrange to have a fully accessible bath/shower discreetly supervised by a professional carer or a haircut and/or foot care.

At lunchtime, you’ll have a freshly prepared two course meal with more activities and tea/cake in the afternoon. You can take the minibus home if you live in the villages mentioned above or be collected by taxi or car (there’s ample parking outside).

Over Day Centre is run by qualified professional carers who are friendly and thoughtful, as well as health & safety conscious. They are experienced with helping people with mobility issues and are trained to administer prescribed medicines. All staff and volunteers are fully DBS checked. The Centre is fully accessible and following social distancing guidelines for Covid safety.

Over Day Centre is also always on the lookout for volunteers to help prepare food, keep the Centre looking good and fundraising.
