The centre is open from 9.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank and Public holidays) and has a full time manager, caring and catering staff. We aim to give our members a break from their own homes, and day respite for their carers, whether immediate family, relations or professionals, who can be confident that their dependants are being well looked after in a caring and professional environment.
The Centre provides a very pleasant location near the town centre for the use of the older residents of Wokingham and surrounding area.
We provide a substantial, healthy freshly cooked two course midday meal, morning and afternoon refreshments. Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, chiropody and hairdressing services are also available.
Outside our beautiful Grade II listed building with its large conservatory, we have a patio area and sweeping gardens with lawns, where members and their guests can relax and enjoy the atmosphere or play outdoor games.
We run two minibuses, with salaried drivers, to bring in members from all parts of the Borough on a daily basis, at a low cost. These minibuses have rear lifting platforms and are equipped to take wheelchairs.
Our current charges for membership, meals etc are available at the centre, or you can email the Centre Manager
