Saxon Day Centre


The Centre has an admission procedure for those who wish to attend on a regular basis. While formal referrals by a health professional are not necessary, there are certain assessments which must be made in order to designate a new client to one of three ‘bands'. The essential criteria for clients in each band are as follows:

Band One

  • Able to function relatively independently
  • Able to self-mobilise with or without the assistance of a walking aid
  • May have mild confusion or a diagnosis of early dementia (e.g. Alzheimer's)

Band Two

  • Requires some physical assistance for personal care (e.g. going to the toilet, bathing and eating)
  • Has a confirmed diagnosis of mild to moderate dementia

Band Three

  • Has a confirmed diagnosis of moderate to severe dementia
  • Requires more support with personal care
