Radis Community Care will be opening the doors to a day centre in an official ribbon cutting ceremony with Deputy Mayor and Town Councillor Paul Darby set to do the honours.
Since 2001, Radis Community Care has been changing the lives of vulnerable adults and children across England and Wales. And now, Radis is set to make a difference to the local community in Swaffham as the John Chapman Day Centre is set to open its doors on 12th February 2024 after giving it a new lease of life.
The John Chapman Day Centre is aimed at the over 55’s in the local area and in a bid to help the people of Swaffham make meaningful connections, combat loneliness and improve their health and wellbeing, Radis Community Care has carefully curated an activities programme suitable for all abilities.
Based at The Old Maltings Extra Care Service in Swaffham, the John Chapman Day Centre will be hosting a fun-filled open day for the whole family to enjoy.
Providing people with the perfect opportunity to discover the centre, learn more about the services on offer and meet the Radis team, the open day is aimed at those who want to find out more about the new hub of the community.
Whether a person requires specialist dementia care, around the clock care due to a long-term health condition, short-term care, or even end of life care, Radis offers it all. And, what’s more, the leading care provider and its 2,500+ carers personalise each package to ensure it is entirely tailored to each client.
The open day will also be jam-packed with interactive activities for everybody to get involved with, including arts and crafts, balloon artists, wiggle and giggle dance time and a variety of music-themed activities.
Kris Oughton, National Activities Lead at Radis Community Care explains the importance of the day centre and what this will mean to the local community.
He said, “The John Chapman Day Centre used to be the place to be, it was the heart and hub of Swaffham – and that is what we aim to achieve once again.
“The day centre will play an integral role in the community, bringing people together.”
Kris also went on to say that everybody is welcome to attend the open day, and the extra care team from The Old Maltings will be on hand to answer any questions that the local community may have.
Moving forwards, the John Chapman Day Centre will be open three days a week, between the hours of 10am and 3pm where the local community can meet new friends, get involved in various fun activities and enjoy a hot healthy lunch.
“It’s important that we can provide people with the opportunity to meet new people, stay active with gentle exercises and to offer nutritious food.
“We’re much more than a day centre, but a life line to so many,” Kris continued.
The John Chapman Day Centre opens on 12th February for its open day and will then be open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am until 3pm.
