Withy Trees Activity Day Centre Fulwood

Our Withy Trees Activity Day Centre is enjoyed by the over 55’s, those living with memory loss and also those with dementia.

The environment at Withy Trees is modern but with an eclectic twist and aims to inspire reminiscence and happy memories whilst offering fulfilment through its varied therapeutic activities.

The centre has professional, skilled and experienced staff and has links with specialist support such as an occupational therapist as well as other key specialist staff.

You will co-produce a structured twelve-week therapeutic activities programme tailored to your needs, and delivered from comfortable, attractive and safe indoor and outdoor spaces in convenient locations.

The centre has recently undergone a bespoke make-over to further enhance its customer experience.

Example of some of our activities;

  • Music and dancing
  • Knit and natter
  • Creative arts
  • Crafts
  • Reminiscence activities
  • Gardening Gang

FREE taster sessions available – Monday to Friday 10.00am – 2.00pm, this gives an opportunity to take part in the activities and enjoy lunch to get a flavour of what we have on offer and if it’s the right environment for your loved one.

Throughout the day we have a robust cleaning schedule and the day centre is then deep cleaned at the end of each night. This protects both our staff and you, keeping everyone safe whilst still being able to provide this essential service.
