Compton Day Therapies

Our day centre partners are here to support you to take on the day ahead, and we’ll even put the kettle on too!

There is a wide range of support available to you at the Compton Day Therapies Centre. Set in the heart of our beautiful Compton Hall grounds, a visit to the centre means you can access our expert clinical and supportive care services whilst also enjoying a series of therapeutic activities

It’s about ‘me time’…

Upon your referral to the Compton Day Therapies Centre we will talk with you to establish your wishes and needs. Together we’ll then create a programme of care, personalised to you, which could include:

A range of experts from across the Compton Care team are on hand to support you during your weekly visit to the day therapies centre. Our doctors and clinical nurse specialists are available to speak with about any queries or concerns you may have, and can offer support with symptom management and pain relief.

Appointments with members of our Physiotherapy team can be arranged, and our social workers are available to help you with any practical matters. Our healthcare assistants are also on hand throughout the day to provide personal care and make you feel at ease.

It might sound simple, but having the opportunity to talk openly about your thoughts and feelings can be a big help. There may be certain things that you feel you can’t discuss with those closest to you, or perhaps you feel that no one else can relate to what you are going through.

At the Compton Day Therapies Centre, we provide opportunities for you to express your thoughts and feelings in ways that you feel most comfortable. Whether it’s a relaxed informal chat with your fellow attendees, talking with a member of our spiritual care team or a one-to-one session with one of our counsellors – the entire Compton Care team are on hand to listen, without judgement.

The chance to talk with others in similar circumstances, as well as interact with the many visitors and the wider Compton Care team, for many is the highlight of a visit to the Compton Day Therapies Centre.

Those visiting the centre can often be found chatting over a cup of tea, bonding over a board game or sharing a mutual passion for a hobby. For those who may not have regular opportunity to leave the house, it’s a great way of making new friends.

There is always something going on at the day centre. We offer a wide selection of activities -all designed to help you feel like you again. Perhaps you are keen to continue a favourite hobby, or would like to learn something new - whether its arts and crafts, creative writing or simply taking the time to read a good book; we want to ensure that you continue to do the things that bring you the most joy.

If you prefer to put your feet up, you may wish to enjoy one of the many complimentary therapies on offer including treatments such as aromatherapy, reiki or reflexology. You can also indulge in a spot of pampering in our on-site salon.

The Compton day centre is also an effective way of providing family members, friends and carers with some essential respite. Those closest to you are able to take time for themselves whilst safe in the knowledge that you are being supported by an expert team.

Accessing Compton Day Therapies

To access our day therapies centre you will need to be referred by a healthcare professional, such as a district or community nurse or your GP. Referrals can be made via our online referral form.

Once we have received your referral, a member of our day therapies team will contact you to take a few details. We consider your age, abilities and interests before suggesting a particular day to attend. You’ll then be invited to the centre to take a look around, but are under no obligation to continue to visit if you decide that it's not for you.

Our day starts at 9:30 am and finishes at around half past 3 but we’re here to work around your needs and are able to be flexible. If you have access to transport, we encourage you to use it however we do have a team of dedicated volunteer drivers who can pick you up and drop you home again if needed.
