The Freemantle Trust, which currently provides day care for three days per week, (on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) in Haddenham Village Hall day centre, will cease to do so at the end of June 2014. The last day is likely be on Wednesday the 25th June.
Each person currently attending will be taken through a period of transition, during which their needs will be reassessed. The costs of providing their care will then be calculated, and this sum will be paid direct to the recipient.
Day care facilities will be offered at the new day centre called Hartwell Day Centre, which is located at Thame Road South, Aylesbury HP21 8TS. Clients funding their own day care will be afforded the same facilities
Transport to the Day Centre will be arranged by Bucks County Council for current recipients and hopefully where needed in future.
The number of clients currently participating in day care at Haddenham is low and the vast majority are from outside the village.
Stonehill House (Haddenham Abbeyfields) is considering offering services on an ad hoc basis. These may include lunches, activities, events and assisted bathing — but this is subject to confirmation.
Haddenham and District Age Concern (HADAC) hosts weekly coffee mornings and lunch events on Fridays and, although some lunches are fully subscribed, HADAC will accommodate extra numbers whenever possible. An Art Group is also available on Friday afternoons and the organisation has vacancies for seniors who would like to enjoy a holiday in Eastbourne this summer (for details, see here). A befriending service is also available which will try to cover any gaps in services within the village.
Linda Bamford currently runs a successful Thursday Day Centre, initially set up by the churches but now self funded.
