Quality Day Care at the Heart of Kings Heath
The Robin Centre in Kings Heath, Birmingham, is a purpose built modern day centre established in July 2009. We provide care and respite for older people, some of whom have been diagnosed with dementia. We are fully equipped to support people with dementia and others in a comfortable, safe environment. Our dedicated staff are experienced and qualified. A day at the centre includes opportunities for friendship and engagement in a wide variety of activities. It also provides valuable respite for carers who can have a day’s break knowing that their loved ones are being well looked after.
Weekly open hour for enquirers
Every Monday (except Bank holidays) we are open between 3.00-4.00pm for anyone who wishes to look round the centre and meet the staff/ask questions. No appointments necessary.

Every day our designated Ring and Ride and Shencare buses collect any of our members who need transport to the Centre, and take them home at the end of the day. A member of our staff is on hand to help members who need support getting to and onto the bus, which also has a tailgate lift. A small daily charge is made for this service.
On arrival at the Centre, members are offered a light breakfast. There is a two course lunch every day and tea and biscuits before departure. Cold drinks are available to anyone needing them, at any time of the day.
