Our day clubs are a service offered by PKAVS Carers Hub and operate in two locations - Perth and Blairgowrie.
Our day services are aimed at providing respite for carers who feel isolated, either geographically, socially or emotionally. We offer a flexible service which carers may use for day respite for the person they care for. To ensure that this service is suitable for the needs of carers and those they care for, our support workers will arrange an initial visit to discuss this.
The day clubs offer a range of activities and outings which both carers and those with care needs may attend. Activities are organsied on a daily basis and include, board games, quizzes, guest speakers and other activities such as gently exercise, relaxation techniques, baking, painting and crafts.
Once you are registered with our day clubs you can access our service at shorter notice. We know that there may be times in your caring role that you require emergency respite and our staff will do all that they can to support you at these times.
Find Out More
The best way to find out more is to talk to one of the staff and to others who attend the day club. You may telephone or write requesting further information and a member of staff will arrange a home visit and discuss the various services which may be helpful to both carer and the cared for.
If you would like more information about the day clubs then please contact Laura McKenzie or Linda McGougan on 01738 567076.
Funding and Registration
Our day services operate through funding from Local Authority, NHS and other charitable trusts. We are associated with the Carers Trust in Scotland and carers are able to seek guidance on services, support and information on a variety of topics and issues.
The day clubs are registered and inspected through the Care Inspectorate and have paid staff and volunteers who are trained and supported to provide a high standard of service.
