Providing Day Opportunities In The Community.
Nubian Life is a vibrant and successful charity operating as a community resource centre in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It was established in 1995 in direct response to a recognised gap in the service provision within the borough for its aging African Caribbean population.
Nubian Life provides Adult Day Care Services for Older (65 years +) African and African Caribbean residents across the borough. Since its inception it has dedicated itself to creating positive experiences and outcomes for its service users and staff. As a result Nubian Life has established itself as a specialist provider in the adult social care sector, by becoming expert in meeting the individual needs of clients with a range of critical health issues, such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and physical and visual impairments.
Nubian Life has been consistently active within the adult social care and community arena for many years, and has partnered and collaborated with a number of other organisations within the sector to help shape guidelines for best practice and service provision; to give voice to the specific needs of older people accessing community services; and to raise awareness for better funding for the sector. Nubian Life has established itself as a recognised leader in adult social care, creating imaginative and innovative initiatives and events for the community, users and staff.
