Daybreak is a small specialist charity that operates three dementia day clubs in and around Oxford. Daybreak also runs two information and support groups for carers of people with dementia, and ‘Thinking Ahead’ for people recently diagnosed.
Dementia is an indiscriminate illness that can affect any older person and our Clubs are designed for anyone with this condition. We invite anyone with dementia to come and meet club members and the staff. Many people are very pleasantly surprised.
We believe that people with dementia deserve the best possible care. Our dedicated staff plan each day’s activities with each individual in mind. Everything we do is designed to provide an opportunity for enjoyment, stimulation and social contact.
Family carers of people with dementia often have to dedicate huge amounts of time and energy to caring, often at the expense of their own wellbeing. Daybreak clubs provide relief from caring each week that can make all the difference.
As a charity we receive from the county council around 60% of the funds we need each year. This means we are always looking for fundraising opportunities and volunteers to help raise money and to enrich our clubs.
Thank you for your support.
