Dalton House Day Care Centre was established in 2001 after a group of community members realised that the needs of the elderly in Gowran were not being addressed.

The vision for Dalton House Day Care was and still is to create an environment where no elderly person feels neglected, alone or forgotten, to enhance their quality of life by providing services to enable them to stay in their own community.

The Board of Directors meet six times a year to deal with any issues which arise and are given a full report on the centres activities by the manager.
