Oakburn Park provides a Day Care service to a specified group (frail people over the age of 60) that live within the area of East Dunbartonshire Council.

The principles of the service are:

  • to safeguard individuals in situations where they may become vulnerable
  • to empower individuals to exercise choice
  • to maximise independance
  • to promote social and community inclusion 
  • to ensure a high quality service
  • to provide accessibility

The service is open Monday - Friday betwen the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm.

Potential service users need to be assessed for Day Care services and should contact a professional from either East Dunbartonshire Social Work or NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to establish that they are frail and/or have dementia and live within the postcode of G61 and G62 (the geographical boundaries of the local authority and relevant NHS team).  These are now in the Health and Social Care Partnership.

The support package includes:

  • Personal care
  • Social inclusion
  • Activity of preference (within reason)
  • Transport
  • Nutritious meals
  • Emotional support
