The Dennis Centre
Based in Redbridge, The Dennis Centre 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 Dennis Centre during the week commencing 26th July 2021 with the following service changes:
Activity for Dennis Centre members will now be held at a local synagogue or communal building, based near to Vi & John Rubens House.
The Dennis Centre building is now being used for the production, packing and distribution of Meals on Wheels for the area. We believe this is the best use of the building while we await approval of our planning application to redevelop the Redbridge Jewish Community Centre. In the meantime, we are also able to make use of better, more up-to-date facilities in local synagogues.
The centre will operate two days a week. 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.
