My wife suffers from vascular dementia and cannot be left alone for more than a couple of hours. She has been a regular at Memory Lane Activity Day Centre, Yeadon since it opened about 17 months ago & looks forward to going each week. The staff there are very helpful, friendly and professional with their care. Nothing is too much trouble. The activities provided are enjoyable and stimulating. The whole atmosphere gives the impression of a large family, where everyone knows each other and no one feels left out. From my point of view, it has been a godsend, providing a bit of respite from the day to day caring of a dementia-suffering person. I generally pick my wife up in the afternoon feeling refreshed and knowing that she has been in very safe hands. I would strongly recommend this centre to anyone suffering from dementia.
