New Day Care
We are a domicillary care agency based in Ashton-in-Makerfield, just outside of Wigan. We are aiming to provide support to individuals who live with dementia on a daily basis, not only in Wigan, but in a lot of the surrounding areas. We currently have staff coming through for Bolton, various different areas in Manchester, Cheshire East and West, Wigan and Preston. We are looking to supply staff members with our own in house dementia training and then looking to branch our own knowledge so we can provide dementia patients with the best possible care.
