The Oasis Centres

We currently have activity centres in Braintree and Chelmsford. Each activity centre offers an active and stimulating environment which can accommodate the special needs of people with dementia.

Carers are very welcome, and find support through meeting and sharing with other carers, joining in the fun, or simply by taking some time out to recharge batteries. The day runs from 11.00 till 4.00, with refreshments and a home-cooked lunch.

Activities include drama, storytelling, music, dance, singing, karaoke, reminiscence, games and more and we have our very own professional artist as a part of the team. Suggestions for new and different activities are always helpful, and we make every effort to accommodate the hobbies of new members.

Carers are welcome free of charge with just a suggested donation for lunch.


“All the staff have always been so helpful and reassure me that I can phone any time just for a chat!”

“Trevor likes going to the Oasis workshop because the staff allows him to get his mind working and have gotten to know him as an individual”
