Belong Didsbury Experience Days

Experience days are our way of inviting you to use the facilities at your nearest Belong village.

This specialist day care service offers meaningful activities and the chance to get involved in our community. From classic film screenings to poetry reading, exercise sessions to local history and crafts to flower arranging, this is a refreshing and unique alternative to conventional day care.

Dementia expertise

People with dementia are especially welcome and all Experience Day customers are invited to make use of our exercise studio (facilitated by one of our expert fitness instructors) and enjoy lunch in the bistro.

Visit the village for one of our Experience days to enjoy the benefits of our community, with a dedicated member of our team on hand to help co-ordinate your day. 

Enriching choices

Experience days offer so much more than conventional day care. We want to help you get the most out of your life. Sometimes that might mean enabling you to meet new people and take part in a range of social activities and sometimes that might mean promoting better relationships by offering respite to carers. Even if you just want a change of scenery and to take in the morning newspapers in a friendly environment, your needs will always be our top priority.

Why not treat yourself and experience life with Belong?
