It was a real privilege to pay a visit again to the Beeches Gold Centre Beeches Road.
To see the work being done by such dedicated staff is just amazing.

Those attending the centre are adults with mental health learning disabilities such as early to late dementia. All are referred via Social services.

The range of activities on offer include crafts ( they were making X mas card to be sold later) snooker, dance, foot ball, fishing and various trips.

There are life skills being taught  such  as life cooking,, laying tables and other basic domestic skills.
The range of food on offer is first class the whole establishment is clean and well cared for.

The centre gives careers some badly needed rest for a few hours.

For those of us who have been a carrer will know what is like to leave a loved one, even for just an hour, but those who leave someone at this centre have nothing to worry about.
I met most of those who were using the centre the day I was there and they were all happy, active and content.
When I visit a centre like this and meet such wonderful people who fight everyday the challenge of their disability It helps put many of the problems I see in perspective.
