CREST Day Care Service

For older adults

We provides a Day Service for older adults with Disabilities and/or Dementia as well as for those who are feeling lonely and isolated.

We encourage clients to travel independently to the service but we can usually (subject to demand) provide accessible transport. Our transport collects clients from Walthamstow, Leyton, Leytonstone, Chingford, Highams Park and Woodford. We have our own escorts on board to assist clients to and from the centre and clients are collected between 9.30am-10.45am and returned home between 3.45pm-5.30pm. 

CREST offers the following at the Day Service:

  • Refreshments on arrival and a morning activity such as board games, puzzles, arts & crafts, exercises, or quizzes.
  • A healthy two course lunch.
  • After lunch we have outside guests, ranging from musicians, music therapists, personal instructors for Tai-Chi and armchair aerobics/exercises.
  • Afternoon refreshments at the end of the day before clients leave Colby Lodge.
