    I'm applying for a social workers assessment for funding so I can perhaps go more often.

    It's lovely to know that your day centre is so good and that you have enjoyed it.hopefuly you will be able to go more often.
    Mum attended our local age uk for 2 yrs before she went in to ch,dad was assessed as needing help following an accident and now attends the same centre.the staff have always been so up beat and full of life and vigour I'm sure it 'rubs off' on the clients
    Hope your next visit is just as good if not better

    My support worker has referred me to a social worker for assessment and says I should hear between 2 weeks to a month. A weight seems to have been lifted off my shoulders

    My day went well again and my painting has improved too. Talked to 2 others with dementia and heard their stories of how they got funding for day care...here's hoping and praying.

    Hope today was as big a success as your last visit.
    Did you get to show / discuss your photos?
    I collected my dad from his day care this afternoon to take him to the eye clinic- he was so chuffed- a 20p game of bingo and he won 32.80- the delight on his face you would have thought it was millions! (Still didn't chip in for the taxi fares,tho!)
    Best wishes for a long and rewarding time at day care

    Didn't go as well and it was a lovely day and so I asked to go out....was denied instant access to the garden it was almost 2 hours later after excuses I finally got outside.
    This has thrown a whole new light on the place and my lack of liberty

    I am sure that was very frustrating, Quakeroat. But if you look at it from their point of view, it may be that there are people there who are a lot less able than you? So maybe it takes time to organise things so it would be safe for them too. The insurance on Centres like this must be very high, and they have to have a certain ratio of staff/volunteers to people attending so maybe they needed to wait until someone could keep an eye, in case you fell? While you might be highly unlikely to fall, another person attending might, and they have rules in place to cover things like not allowing any of the people attending the Centre out in the garden unless a member of staff is available to keep an eye on them?

    Maybe you could talk to your Social Worker or the Manager at the Centre, and explain that you have been really enjoying it, but that you found not being able to go out very frustrating, and felt as if you were not free?
