NHS APP

Get the NHS App

We have decided to use the NHS App instead of Patient Access for online access in future, although we’ll still respond to Patient Access requests.  The NHS App has a number of advantages for you and us, which we have described on the Online Services page of the surgery website where there are also instructions on how to upload the NHS app and register with it.

Older Adult Services

Older Adult Services (Chiltern & South)

What we do

Park Club in Chesham, and Pippin Club in Prestwood are Buckinghamshire Mind’s services for older people. Our clients have either dementia, or other mental health issues which make it difficult to access other services in the community.

Our services are for small groups of approximately ten clients. We aim to provide support, fun, companionship and stimulating activities in a friendly environment giving carers a few hours respite. Both Park and Pippin provide a lunch cooked on the premises.

How we work

Through a small and friendly group setting, we provide support, companionship and stimulation for older people who have become isolated in their community either through having dementia or another mental health problem. Our specialist workers develop close working relationships with all of our clients and a real understanding of their individual needs. We also place a strong emphasis on developing working relationships with families and carers in order to help us provide the best quality support to our clients.

Our two services at Park Club in Chesham and Pippin Club in Prestwood offer a variety of activities such as games, quizzes, orientation and reminiscence activities, crafts and physical activities.

Who do we work with?

We work with older people whose needs can be met within a group environment.

How to access the service

Referral can be made by clients, family members, carers, Community Mental Health Teams, Social Services or other agencies such as The Alzheimer’s Society. Once a referral is received, a visit to the club is arranged to meet the staff team. An initial assessment meeting will take place with the Senior Wellbeing Worker to establish whether the service can meet the client’s needs.
