Activities for older people, people with support needs and people with dementia that live in the Adur area.

We understand that time is precious, even more so when you are caring for someone who has dementia, or is elderly and frail. We recognise the importance of getting some time for you to rest and recuperate.

Our aim at Independent Lives is to support you in your caring role and give you the time and space to be yourself. We provide various activities from day outings, community based sessions, one to one support for the person you care for to a Carers Bubble where Carers like you have some space to get together whether it is in person or via online meetings.

Our trained staff and volunteers will work with you and the person you care for to put together a programme of activities that suit both you and the person you care for needs and interests.

We understand that at this time you might be anxious going out and understand your need to be cautious. We keep numbers low and follow a COVID-19 risk assessment. All staff wear a face mask and have had training to ensure that the activity is as safe as possible.
