Newbridge Day Care Centre is located in the heart of Newbridge town on Station Road. The centre opened its doors on the 6th May 1991. It provides a range of day care services and a warm welcoming environment to all our service users who at present are local to Newbridge and Kilcullen.
We strive to promote preferences, pastimes, and health promotion in a safe and social environment. However, the main aim of the centre is to offer service users the opportunity to cultivate connections with people, a pivotal pillar of good mental health and wellbeing.
Activities vary and service users can chose the ones they would like to take part in.
Spirituality is important to service users and weekly communion and reflections occur each Friday morning for those who wish to participate.
Mass is also conducted in the centre at Christmas and Easter.
Health monitoring occurs for service users who require support with their health care needs. Chiropody is also available regularly.
The centre also provides a Meals on Wheels Service to the Newbridge community Monday to Friday. Our chef leads the catering team and provides nutritious main course meals and dessert to individuals daily in conjunction with our amazing volunteer drivers.
Newbridge Day Care Centre aims to provide a safe, welcoming, inclusive and person-centred service to the people of Newbridge and its surrounds.
