Centre’s support is life-changing

Rye and Battle Observer letters

I am very troubled to have learned that day care centres are at risk.

The provision of this service is a life-changing support, both to people with dementia and their carers.

Some carers have been looking after loved ones for many years.

A few hours respite is often the only thing that keeps carers able to cope.

I speak from experience. My precious husband attended the day centre in Sackville Road.

I can’t find the words to tell you the huge amount of support they give.

The staff at the day centre - the drivers and the escorts - are doing an incredible job and deserve and need all the help they can get.
