Day care support is regarded as an important respite service to families and carers looking after a person with dementia and helping people who live with dementia to stay living at home longer. 

Keats is a Blackpool Council service that provides day care, support and respite for people with moderate and advanced dementia. The primary objective of the service is to support people to improve and maintain their quality of life, promoting independence where possible whilst providing respite for carers. 

We pride ourselves on delivering person centred care that meets individual needs with a strong focus on well-being and personal quality care. Staff at Keats understand the complexities and challenges of supporting a person living with dementia and recognise the importance helping them feel at ease and we have a range of facilities and adaptations to support individual personal care needs.
