The Leonard Sainer Centre at the new Zalman & Ruchi Noé Centre at Sandringham is for people who are living with memory impairment or who have been diagnosed with a form of dementia.

We will be looking to resume activity for the members of the Leonard Sainer Centre during the week commencing 26th July 2021 with the following service changes: 

As you know, The Leonard Sainer Centre building closed in 2020. Members will now be welcomed at a the new Zalman & Ruchi Noé Centre for People Living with Dementia at Sandringham, our newest state-of-the-art campus with excellent, modern facilities that they will be able to make full use of. Our Sandringham site is located in 16 acres of beautiful woodland, local conveniences and is home to the Anita Dorfman care home and Pears Court Retirement Living apartments. They will also be able to make full use of the Ronson Family Community Centre on site, which has its own café, and on-site synagogue.

The centre will operate from Monday-Thursday. This is to reflect the changes in attendance we had noticed before the pandemic with these days being the most attended and preferred by those attending our centres.

We will continue to offer a hot, kosher meal on site, and a Jewish Care minibus will operate for those members who need additional help with transportation.

There will be no changes at all to our membership or attendance fees, and they will remain as they were before the pandemic.
