THE CENTRE, THE DRIFT, NACTON ROAD
My daughter and I researched day centres for my husband who has Alzheimers and although day centres in Nursing homes are there, it was not for Allan. He is still very active although gets totally confused and of course his memory is not good. I need to take him out at least half a day as he does nothing but sit in a chair and sleep. He doesn't watch TV anymore or read. He used to love all the sport on the TV but alas, cannot hear properly or understand what they are saying. He was so good at DIY but of course not now. The Centre was absolutely ideal for him and he has now been four times and loves it. The rooms are clean, tidy and spacious. The staff so caring and pleasant. Allan cant wait to get back so we are trying to arrange for him to go Wednesdays as well. Of course this gives me a much needed break from the frustration of trying to cope with a person with this dreadful illness, especially when I am 80 years old.
