Breaks for Carers

Sonali Gardens Day Care Centre provides culturally appropriate day care for Bangladeshi and other older people. Housed on our satellite site in the Shadwell area of Tower Hamlets, this award-winning day care service is open 7 days a week with stimulating activities on offer.

Older People’s Project provides social support and activities for people over 60 living in the local area. The ‘lunch club plus’ service offers activities such as Keep Fit sessions, Computer Club, arts and crafts, outings and parties. Accessible transport to the centre can be arranged for housebound and less mobile users. The Project also supports an independent Pensioners Action Group.

Shebadan, meaning ‘care-giving’ in Bengali, meets the diverse needs of Asian, mainly Bangladeshi, users in the community by providing personal care services such as washing, bathing, dressing, as well as tasks such as cleaning and shopping. It supports users in taking control of their lives.

LinkAge Plus is a service for all people over 50, providing a range of activities from exercises to coffee mornings, as well as supporting access to local services (e.g. pension advice, health). Based in our Shadwell satellite site, LinkAge Plus works within Lap 3 and 4 wards of Tower Hamlets.

Short Term and Flexible Breaks for Carers provides break services to carers within the Bangladeshi and other Asian communities in Tower Hamlets. St. Hilda’s also runs monthly Carers Support Group called Fursoth (meaning ‘take rest’ in Bengali).

Boitok Group is part of the Older People’s Project. Aimed at Bangladeshi elders living in the local community, it meets weekly for lunch and stimulating and culturally appropriate activities. Boitok means ‘a regular meeting of people’ in Bengali.
