New activity centre to open in Springfield, Chelmsford

In line with our strategy to help more people and loved ones living with dementia, Essex Dementia Care is expanding and will open a new activity centre at the Springfield Parish Centre.

The new ‘Every Day Counts’ group will be held every Tuesday from 11am to 4pm and the grand opening will take place on Tuesday 2nd May 2023.  We have invited all our existing clients, families and associates to attend the opening ‘Taster Day’ to enjoy some fun entertainment and a buffet lunch.  It will be a chance to view the new facility and to chat to our team about the new group and the other services we offer the community.

Senior Manager Kelly Bleasdale says “We have high hopes for the new activity centre and are looking forward to the opening. We presently run ‘Every Day Counts’ groups at Sandon and Broomfield in Chelmsford but these are nearly running at full capacity.  The Sandon group meets on a Wednesday and Broomfield on a Friday, so Tuesday is a perfect day to offer new and existing clients.  Our ‘Every Day Counts’ groups support people in the early stages of dementia, helping them to retain existing skills and to stay active in the community.  Our clients are kept busy with many types of activities including artwork, crafts, games, ‘Music and Movement’, singing and dancing and much more.  There are also plans to have some days out to places of interest when the weather warms up.”

The Springfield Parish Centre is located at St Augustine’s Way CM1 6GX, Springfield, Chelmsford.

Call 01245 363789 to reserve a place at the ‘Taster Day’ on 2nd May 2023. 

We have promised to help more people with DEMENTIA in 2024 and are happy to announce the opening of a new ‘Every Day Counts’ activity centre in WRITTLE, Chelmsford.
