The Centre continued to expand the scale and scope of its provision of care to older and disabled people. A memorial garden was established at the rear of the Centre. An art exhibition celebrating members’ work was arranged; it has become an annual event. The service became more streamlined and professional, and evolved into the organisation as it is today. The activities on offer are diverse and designed to stimulate mind and body.
A range of exercise classes- to appeal to differing tastes and abilities- is available three times/ week. Art classes are available daily, computer classes are run twice a week. There is live entertainment every day.
Discussion and Reminiscence sessions are very popular. Meals on Wheels provide 150 meals per week to those unable to cater for themselves. The increase in the incidence of dementia is reflected in the membership; the organisation has responded to this by providing state of the art training to staff and carers of people suffering from dementia related illnesses.
