A Fabulous Day Centre located in Droitwich, Worcestershire
Spectrum Days opened in April 2013 solely as a Day Centre, before expanding to Domiciliary Care in 2014. Our amazing centre has 3 main activity rooms, The Den, The Hall and The Cabin, as well as a Sensory Room and a Garden Area for our members to utilise. We have activities in the centre ranging from Live Music to Animal Therapy, and work on a person-centred program for each of our members.
We benefitted from financial support through
The National Lottery Community Fund: Awards for All
to manage increased cleaning costs incurred since the
pandemic. We are very grateful. This support sustained
the charity through the most challenging of times.
Maintaining a clean and safe building has always been a priority, but during the recent pandemic it has been of the highest importance. Our members can be confident that our training, policy and procedures are reviewed on a regular basis. The pandemic has been a standing agenda item for the senior management team.
In response we Increased the level of training to include:
-Social Distancing - Covid-19
-Working in a Covid World
-Hand Hygiene For Care
-Developed stringent procedures for PPE etc
-Painted activity rooms.
-Washed/replaced soft covers.
-Deep cleaned the building and had an antibacterial coating on all hard surfaces.
-Developed systems, such as the patch system.
-Moved our building-based activities to the internet to be accessed at home
-During periods of absence offered alternative services, in the home or to shop, fetch
-Increased the regularity and level of cleaning.
-Kept constant and regular contact with our families
These measures prevented as far as possible our staff and members. As far as we can assess,
any infection cane form the community. Despite the reduction of hospital admissions from
COVID we continue with the extra cleaning and use of PPE. This is constantly under review and
we assess on an ongoing basis to keep our members and team safe.
