Rialto Social Day Care Centre

The stated purpose of the Centre is to allow the older persons of Rialto and the wider community to maintain their dignity and independence after a lifetime of contribution to society. Open five days a week, the Centre provides up to 75 places per week for older people. This takes the form of 15 places per day, with some clients coming for one or two days a week, and some coming five.

The Centre offers a transport service to collect and return clients daily from their homes. Clients take part in social activities including bingo, music, watching DVDs etc. as well as participating in organised classes such as painting, arts & crafts and yoga. They can also relax in the garden and enjoy a hot meal prepared daily from our kitchen.

Personal hygiene services such as hairdressing and showering are also part of the overall service provided, as is chiropody. An annual trip is organised each year and when funds permit clients may also be brought to enjoy such activities as concerts.

Clients are also assisted when necessary to access information they might require, fill in forms, manage hospital appointments and link in with relevant professional services.
