Romney Marsh Day Centre has worked hard over the years to become a ‘community hub’ that focus’ on supporting people to live the life they choose. The stereotype of ‘old people’ sitting in rows with no purposeful activity could not be further from the truth. We support – (rather than coerce or direct) the people who come to the centre and we respect every individual’s right to be as involved as they wish. Is this just semantics? We believe not.
Caring for ‘clients or ‘service users’ implies a power balance between the carer and the cared for. However benevolent this image, it is neither empowering nor enabling and is a far cry from the independence, dignity and respect that we believe, the centre offers its members.
Romney Marsh Day Centre is all about living later life both to the full and in the way you choose. We can support you to try new experiences, meet new people and access a range of services that keep you engaged and vibrant in the local community but we fully understand that you have a life outside the centre and we respect your independence.
As valued guests we welcome any feedback and your comments and opinions are invaluable in helping to shape the future of our service.
