Activities for older people, people with support needs, and people with Dementia in Shoreham and Lancing

When you are caring for someone it’s really important you get some time to yourself.

We support older frail people and people with Dementia, and arrange suitable transport so that your loved one is picked up and returned home safely.

Our trained staff and volunteers will work with you and your loved one to put together a programme of activities that suit your needs and interests.

When and where?

Day trips on Monday and Tuesdays

We can take your loved one out for a day trip locally. We will speak to you and your loved one to find where you would like to visit and what activities appeal to you.

Our trained staff and volunteers will pick up your loved one in accessible transport, and take them out for the day with a group. Day trips are offered 40 weeks of the year, and are on Mondays and Tuesdays each week.

The day trips include trips to the cinema, days on Worthing or Brighton Pier, pub lunches in beautiful surroundings, Afternoon Teas, and visits to local garden centres. We also plan trips at special times of year, including Christmas and autumn, spring and summertime.
