The Wellbeing Day Centre - an extension of The Dell Care Home in Oulton Broad - offers a place where those in need of care can socialise and enjoy activities alongside like-minded people.

On Saturday, April 21, the open day gave potential clients and their families an opportunity to find out more about the centre’s numerous services.

Day centre assistant manager, Daniella Penedo, said: “The day went very well and we were able to showcase the beautiful crafts made by residents - just one of the activities that goes on here.

“We’re currently trying to obtain a grant for a dementia-friendly garden and we’re always looking for volunteers to help improve the centre and deliver our services.
