James’ Place Adult Day Care
Founded by Guy Rolfe, who’s brother James suffers from severe epilepsy and learning disabilities, Guy felt that many Day Care Centres didn’t offer enough support, diversity or free thinking for their members. Guy decided to create a unique chain of Day Care Centres that delivered support in the way he felt was required.
We pride ourselves on our holistic approach. You’ll never find any TV’s at our location and all individuals are encouraged to find their voice and make their own choices. Leading to our ethos of Your Voice, Your Choice.
Unlike many daycare services we provide support in the most beautiful of settings, surrounded by nature in secure locations.
