"I'm pleased I came along to the centre"

About: New Cumnock Day Care

(as a service user),

I started coming to the day centre about 5 years ago after my hip replacement. I wasn’t as able as I used to be and my social worker suggested it. I use a walking frame to get around now, I bought it myself as I didn’t feel confident with my stick.

I hesitated initially about the centre but I’m pleased I came along. I enjoy coming as I’m normally home alone. My daughter visits every day but it’s still a long day.

Staff at the centre are very nice, very helpful. They really are excellent.

Meals are good, I enjoy them

I enjoy the activities like bingo and name that tune. We do quizzes, I’m not that clever at those but they’re good, it makes me think. The staff also read out the newspaper which keeps us up to date with what’s going on.

Dear JJ12

Thank you very much for the lovely comments about New Cumnock Day Centre. I'm pleased to note that you find the staff are nice and helpful. It sounds as if there is plenty of variety in terms of activities on offer and like you I also like name that tune!

Attending day care is an excellent opportunity for meeting people you know and having a chat. I hope you don't mind but I plan to let the staff know of all your lovely comments.

Kind Regards, Marie
