Hoylake Cottage Dementia Day Service

Hoylake Cottage Specialist Dementia Centre is here to help and support the individual, their loved ones or carers . No matter what stage of dementia the individual is at, our specialist dementia service can offer a wide range of both therapeutic and social activities. Support is offered within a dignified, respectful and person centred approach. It is important that the individual remains central to their support as their dementia progresses, and their voice is heard. Our specialist day service is split into two facilities. Each of these offers support in bright, airy and spacious lounge areas. Our Memory Lane rooms include a 1950 shop and 1930 parlour, a pub with a 1970 theme, all of which are used for reminiscence. We also offer quiet rooms for peaceful relaxation. We offer support to our carers through monthly meetings where we team up with other organisations to help and advise on every eventuality you may face during your journey with dementia.
