About the ABLE day care centre
Based in Colburn, North Yorkshire, our ABLE Day Centre provides an opportunity for people with learning or physical disabilities, mental health issues or dementia, to engage in meaningful activities which help to improve concentration, aid dexterity, encourage decision-making and promote social interaction.
The experienced, fully trained staff have a mixture of specialist care qualifications, enabling the delivery of person-centred development plans for those who use the service, helping each individual to explore their own potential.
Some of the activities enjoyed at ABLE include card making, watercolour painting, glass and pottery painting, woodcraft, soft furnishings, patchwork and embroidery. We also have a resident Pets As Therapy (PAT) dog called Maisie, who provides comfort and pleasure to clients.
