Background:

The original HayDay Cusop came about following a “memory day” in April 2013 organised by Hay on Wye U3A, Haygarth surgery provided information that approx 40 people in and around the Hay area have some form of dementia. A group of people thought that more support should be available in our community, especially as there are no day centre facilities or other social groups focused on people with a dementia in our locality.

Our Aim

To enhance the well-being and dignity of people with a dementia (and associated conditions) and their carers, our aims are threefold:

  • To provide an opportunity for people to meet in an everyday social setting.
  • To enjoy each others company, share information, have fun and take part in stimulating activities.
  • To achieve an improvement in the quality of life for participants and enhance their social inclusion.

Our Objectives

HayDay provides a place which:

  • Centres activities on the person with a dementia to improve their wellbeing
  • Uses volunteers to provide one-to-one friendship support & activities
  • Enables carers to take part in activities and informal networking with other carers
