Resource Centre Day Services

The Department of Health and Social Care runs 5 Resource Centres on the Isle of Man for people with learning disabilities. Of these centres there are 3 which provide day services focused on activities to engage Service Users in improving social skills and gaining greater independence.

What if I want to go to a Resource Centre?

If you would like to attend a Resource Centre, first speak to your family or carer, then contact the Adult Services Access Team Telephone: +44 1624 686179.

If you become a day Service User you may be asked to read and sign a document as an agreement between you and the Resource Centre. If you need help with this, you can ask for help from someone you know and trust.

Who can go to the Resource Centres?

If you are an adult with a learning disability you may be able to attend one of our Resource Centres. You will need to be assessed by a social worker that will then compare your needs to the services provided at each Resource Centre. Woodbourne Day Centre is focussed on activities for older adults up to the age of 65.

Medication and personal care at the Resource Centres

If you take medication, we can remind you to take it yourself or help you to take it. We will look after it for you. Your medication must be labelled with your name, the name of the medication, what time you have to take it, and whether you have to take it with food or not.

The staff at Woodbourne are trained to support people with all personal care needs. Our bathrooms have special equipment in case you need to use it.

Communication

If you struggle to communicate your needs we have staff trained in signalong and other types of communication to help. We have a Boardmaker that you can use to make pictures to let us know what you need. 

My Person Centred Plan ('PCP')

Everyone that uses the services at Woodbourne Day Centre has a Person Centred Plan. This lets us know about your needs and helps us to help you.

Confidentiality

We will not tell anyone else anything you have told us unless you tell us something which makes us think that you are unsafe. If this happens we will have to tell the Social Worker so that they can help.
