Being a full time caregiver can be tough. Nightingales Dementia Day Care Centres are set up to provide the much needed respite for caregivers and also to ensure that persons with dementia (PwD) are taken care of in a stimulating social environment.
At the day care centres, the PwDs are assessed initially and based on the assessment, care plans are designed. All activities of the centres are overseen by dementia experts.
An ideal day at the centre has a set of therapeutic activities that are planned, designed and reviewed periodically by the care team, family carer and the PwD. Full day and half day programs are offered – these include orientation therapy, physical exercises, social activities, cognitive rehabilitation and stimulation activities like memory games, reminiscence therapy and sensory stimulation activities like pet/doll therapy, gardening, music and dance therapy.
Day Care for persons with Dementia, Parkinson's, Stroke and other chronic illnesses
Cognitive assessments for persons over 60 years of age to check for memory disorders
Periodic support group meetings and training programs are conducted for carers of persons with Dementia
My aunt is a changed person after she started coming to Nightingales Trust Dementia Day Care Centre. She looks forward to going to the Centre everyday. NMT has been a blessing too for us, her caregivers. While we are at work we are at peace knowing that she is safe and sound under your care. We are truly thankful and grateful for the wonderful effort each one of you is putting in, for making the lives of dementia patients more meaningful and in turn helping the caregivers breathe easier. A big thank you.

I am very happy to share my thoughts in terms of the services at the Nightingales Trust Dementia Day Care Centre. My father joined recently for day care service and he is really enjoying the company with other folks. The mentors, trainers and facilities are good. After joining the Centre I can see some improvements in his routine lifestyle. The staff are thorough professionals and highly skilled and they are very helpful in terms of any clarification if we have any to discuss and they provide swift response which is really good.
