Our Care

Established by the local community in 1998, Uplands is committed to providing good day care for older people in a friendly setting.  This care and support helps people to continue to live independently, improves quality of life and gives respite to carers and families.

Our team are experienced in caring for people with a wide range of conditions; those living with dementia, Parkinson’s or cardiac and respiratory conditions and those recuperating after a stroke or hospital visit.  If guests require medication during the day our trained staff are able to assist with or administer medication as required.

The days at Uplands follow a familiar pattern but everything is flexible in response to the needs and wishes of our guests.

All are welcome at Uplands, irrespective of guest’s religious beliefs, sexual orientation or ethnicity.
