Belong Newcastle Under Lyme Day Care

Available 10am – 4pm,

Experience days are our way of inviting you to use the facilities at your nearest Belong village.

This specialist day care service offers meaningful activities and the chance to get involved in our community. From classic film screenings to poetry reading, exercise sessions to local history and crafts to flower arranging, this is a refreshing and unique alternative to conventional day care.

Dementia expertise

People with dementia are especially welcome and all Experience Day customers are invited to make use of our exercise studio (facilitated by one of our expert fitness instructors) and enjoy lunch in the bistro.

Visit the village for one of our Experience days to enjoy the benefits of our community, with a dedicated member of our team on hand to help co-ordinate your day. 

Enriching choices

Experience days offer so much more than conventional day care. We want to help you get the most out of your life. Sometimes that might mean enabling you to meet new people and take part in a range of social activities and sometimes that might mean promoting better relationships by offering respite to carers. Even if you just want a change of scenery and to take in the morning newspapers in a friendly environment, your needs will always be our top priority.

Why not treat yourself and experience life with Belong?

Notes

Belong Newcastle-under-Lyme opened its doors on 9th April, providing 24-hour nursing and dementia care facilities for 72 residents in six households and 28 apartments for independent living, along with a range of community facilities.

It boasts an extensive village centre, including bistro, exercise studio and therapy room and also a unique Heritage Gallery housed in the historic Grade II listed building that has been distinguished throughout the years as Samuel Bell's Pottery, The Old Pomona Inn and most recently the iconic Maxims nightclub, which closed in 2006.

Thanks to National Lottery players, the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded a £1.8 million grant to transform the once derelict building into the Belong Heritage Gallery.

The gallery is integrated within the village centre and aims to link the past and present through shared memories, experiences and reminiscence. It will form the base for Belong's Experience Days service, specialist day care for older people, and aims to become a dementia centre of excellence.

Featuring Samuel Bell's tea room, a recreated Old Pomona Inn with licensed bar, a reminiscence room, craft and activities room and hair salon with nail bar, the gallery offers a range of activities and opportunities for people to engage with local heritage.

For people looking for support in their own homes, we offer an award-winning home care service, Belong at Home.
