Age Concern Bracknell Forest (Day Centre & Community Groups)

Age Concern Bracknell Forest sets out to inspire and support the elderly community. Established in 1979, we are an organisation driven by progressive care. We believe that nobody should be discriminated against and that carers deserve respite.

The Day Centre:

Our centre is open Monday - Friday, 9 am - 4 pm. We offer supportive care and stimulation to those who need it.

We are fully dementia-friendly, our centre lends itself to the condition along with our dedicated care team who have substantial experience in supporting those diagnosed.

We pack a lot into a day! with multiple group activities like games, crafts, quizzes, bingo, fitness, and more. We have films and music all worked into our entertainment schedules to keep everyone entertained. We encourage participation but don't insist on it. Our care team actively encourages relationship building and conversation.

All our members have individual support plans, key workers, and their behaviours and diet are monitored in a none intrusive way. This enables us to communicate and clearly measure any deterioration that carers, families, or representatives may need to be aware of. We hold formal reviews periodically to ensure we are as open and transparent as possible. 

COMMUNITY GROUPS:

Age Concern Bracknell Forest runs two community groups. They are open to anyone who wants to come join us for games, coffee, tea and a chat. Our aim is to bring people toggther and end loneliness and isolation locally. 

  • Priestwood Community Centre, Fortnightly, 10am - 12pm. 
  • Bullbrook Community Centre, Fortnightly, 10am - 12pm.

Essentially, every Friday - one week at Bullbrook, one week at Priestwood.
