A new day club for Salisbury

Scots Lane dementia day club opened in late March 2023. It's the result of an ambitious renovation project to create a purpose-designed space close to, and accessible from, the city centre. 

Like Alzheimer's Support's other clubs, it features a spacious main activity room, an open plan kitchen and quieter indoor garden area where members can unwind in more natural-feeling surroundings.  And like the other clubs, the focus is on providing a stimulating and engaging day out for people who, with the right support, have much still to enjoy in life. 

There is space for 11 members and each day follows our trademark formula of small group activities, a relaxed informal atmosphere and high staff ratios allowing everyone to follow their own preferences.

    

What to expect at Scots Lane club

We get to know members well at all our day clubs and activities are tailored as much as possible to a member's own interests. General activities include art therapy, cookery, board games, reminiscence, poetry readings, photography and much more, alongside plenty of chat and laughter. The club is keen to forge close links with the local community with visiting schoolchildren, musicians and entertainers all welcomed. 

Lunch is prepared from fresh ingredients each day in the club's open plan kitchen, with members getting involved with preparations if they wish to. 

What a fantastic day club thank you for all you do. It was successful for my mum x

Members will join at least once a week by therapy whippets Higby and Dottie and by other local volunteer dogs on other days of the week. 

Scots Lane is open from 9.45am to 3.45pm four days a week (Tuesday to Friday). The club is managed by Heidi Bradley under the guidance of our Head of Day Care Services, Grant Newton. They are supported by a team of experienced support workers and trained volunteers.
