Approach Day Group Closure
Following the most recent government advice we have made the difficult decision to close all Approach Day Care Groups by the end of this week (20th March 2020). As the recommendation is for people over 70 to isolate for the next 12 weeks, it would now seem to be unsafe to continue to bring people into groups.
The Approach 1-2-1 Dementia My Day My Way will continue for as long as we are able, though support staff will now be offering home based activities.
We are working with our staff to identify group members who may need individual support during this period and we will try and adapt to offer our assistance and also link people in with the appropriate care agencies.
We really are in unprecedented times, but we are working hard to ensure that we can continue to offer as much help, support and advice for anyone in North Staffordshire/ Stoke affected by dementia.
For clarity the government advice is:
Our main focus at Approach is to ensure all of our group members have support in place, if you have any questions or concerns please contact your Group Officer or phone the main Approach office on: 01782 214999
We will be updating our information on a regular basis, please continue to check our website/ social media.
