Our Osbaldwick Sports Club

Osbaldwick Sports Club, The Leyes, Osbaldwick, York, YO10 3RP
Osbaldwick Sports Club is an amazing facility, spotlessly clean, comfortable and with full disabled access and a lot of safe flat outside space. So, when the weather is nice our dementia day care club will move outside into the fresh air a bit more often. We’re not limited to the club though because here at Rainbow Care Group we have our own mini bus and we get out and about on day trips in the local area. Trips are already planned to the piglet farm, The train museum in the city and the air museum at Ellington as well as the odd coastal trip for fish and chips!
Light refreshments will be available.
Day club members are limited to 12 people per day which allows us to tailor preferences, diet and our service to each individual client.

Meet our Dementia Care Specialists
Andy and Glyn
Hi, we’re Andy and Glyn.
We first met as teenagers when we played cricket for Whitkirk Cricket Club in Leeds and have remained good friends ever since, as well as retaining an interest in a wide variety of sports.
Andy has run successful businesses throughout his life; these include a restaurant, a corporate hospitality company and at present a business supplying chocolate equipment for professional chocolatiers, as you can see, most of these reflect his major passion, food! His other interests are travelling, especially around the Far East, in particular in India and Nepal where he can often be found half way up Mount Everest or adjoining hills, he is a master scuba diving instructor, photographer and keen bee-keeper.
Glyn has run businesses for the last 14 years, the last 7 of which have involved owning a successful domiciliary care business in Yorkshire. He had a couple of attempts at becoming a professional sportsman when younger, playing cricket for Yorkshire and rugby league for Halifax and Hunslet, but didn’t quite make it. He also has a passion for food and loves cooking,and occasionally works as a TV extra, having appeared in the background in many shows including Coronation Street and Emmerdale.
Glyn was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in 2021 but was thankfully given the all-clear after lengthy treatment. As a result, he decided to embark on a charity bike ride to raise money for MacMillan Cancer and the Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract. In conjunction with Castleford Tigers RLFC he planned to cycle almost 1000 miles to Toulouse to watch the match between the 2 teams in June 2022. Thankfully (foolishly!) Andy agreed to join him on the mission, despite neither of them having ridden a bike for 30 years, and between them they raised over £10,000 for the 2 worthy causes.
Having seen the fantastic work undertaken by The Rainbow Care Group and the massive benefits gained by the people who attended the sessions, Andy and Glyn were determined to get involved and now run 2 areas covering East Leeds, Castleford, Selby and York.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the taster day free?
Totally. We want you to experience the day as if you were a full member. This means places are limited, so please contact us today to reserve a place.
Is it a full day or half day?
The day runs from 10am until 4pm. This is really important to give the carer a full day respite, but also to embed the loved one into the group. The change that takes place when someone gets a full day of stimulation is much faster, so beneficial all round.
Can the carer stay with the loved one?
We don’t advise this, no. This is because it is as important for the carer to get some time off and feel refreshed as it is for the loved one to feel part of the group.
Is there food?
Yes, we provide a healthy, nutritious lunch for all. (Allergies will be discussed prior to a taster day)
Do you give personal care?
We can provide personal care and we will deliver this support in the most respectful and dignified way possible. We provide a thorough assessment where we will be able to offer clarification on everything we can provide as part of our service.
