News & Events
Isolation and Loneliness
Daisy Chain specialise in combating isolation and loneliness. Our staff have completed training on isolation and loneliness and are activity involved in encouraging our clients to feel socially included within their community. We have our own social inclusion committee who arrange activities outside the home or inside as appropriate. We have received feedback from relatives who are surprised and pleased their loved ones are getting involved with our events. Our clients are provided with our 'on call' phone number which they are able to ring, should they feel lonely or would just like a chat.
All activities arranged by the committee is fully funded by Daisy Chain Home Support.
For those clients who prefer company in their own homes, this too can be arranged.
We have moved!
Welcome to the new Daisy Chain Office at Dairy Barn Mews!
As the company is expanding, we needed more space and more office staff to continue to keep Daisy Chain working to the best of its ability.
We are settling in well in our new office and we look forward to welcoming all the carers and clients back safetly when restrictions ease.
Afternoon Tea Delivery
We love getting all the staff and clients together for tea and cakes. unfortunately due to covid, we have not been able to do this. But we don't want our clients missing out, so we delivered it instead!
All our clients received a freshly baked fruit scone, pot of strawberry jam and clotted cream, gift wrapped and served with a cuppa!
This year for Easter, one of our very tallented carers Jayne, knitted some little chicks with a chocolate easter egg inside for all of our clients.
They went down a treat!
Daisy Chain would like to wish all our lovelly clients, their families and our amazing staff a happy Easter and a relaxing bank holiday weekend.

'Jessie' the Therapy Dog
Jessie the Daisy dog has been visiting all the clients in recent weeks. Jessie loves meeting new people and loves a treat. Many of our clients used to have a pet but can no longer, so really enjoyed seeing Jessie. One client commended what a 'fantastic idea' this was and that it has 'made her day'. It has proven that this form of therapy decreases anxiety, promotes feelings of well being and brings back memories. Jessie is a huge success with our clients and will be making rounds again soon!
