Thicketford House Community Care Centre - Support for carers

Favourite This

When?

Where?

Thicketford Road, , Bolton, BL2 2LW

Info

Thicketford Community Care Centre is on Thicketford Road, off Tonge Moor Road. We are open 364 days a year. We have 23 assessed service users attending each day plus between 35 and 50 drop-in users. 

The centre is a hive of activity – including entertainment, reminiscence sessions, and an art group, to name a few. People can learn computer skills, including e-mailing relatives abroad. We offer an active carers support group, with a dedicated worker. Carers are much in evidence in the centre, and they are an integral part of our community. Local people over the age of 60 drop in to join in the activities, have a cup of tea, a snack or a hot meal for a small charge. For people who want to sit quietly, we have a sensory garden. Older people who live for a short time at Thicketford often join in the activities that are offered. The centre also accommodates Asian Elders day care.

We promote independence in older people whilst having a strong belief in maintaining the rights of the individual. We are located in the heart of the community and are part of older peoples lives in our neighbourhood.

How do I get day care?
Through a social work assessment, where a social worker visits and asks questions and listens to you, to find out what help you need. We cannot help everyone. We aim to help those who have the greatest need and we measure this using certain standards, which we call ‘eligibility criteria’. Once it has been agreed a service can be offered, an introductory visit will be arranged. Go to
