President: Lady Elizabeth Godsal
We are a registered charity whose aim is to assist elderly residents in the area to maintain their independence and quality of life. We serve the local villages of Twyford, Hurst, Wargrave, Sonning, Ruscombe and Charvil.
Our small, friendly adult day centre is here to help those who are frail, lonely or isolated and to offer respite to their carers. We have a duty of care to our members - their happiness and wellbeing is our priority. We provide a stimulating, caring and active environment, offering companionship as well as respite care and its small, intimate setting encourages members to talk to each other and to staff. We aim to meet all needs and are committed to treat our members with the respect they deserve. For many members the Centre plays a vital role in improving their quality of life and for them it is almost like having an extended family.
All events are held at The Twyford Centre and open to the public unless stated otherwise.
Age Concern Twyford and District is holding a fund raising concert on the 16th July at 7.30pm at The Piggott School, Twyford Road, Wargrave. The Woodley Concert Band will be performing on the night - they are a friendly, active and dynamic band performing the very best in music from time and space, so if you enjoy a brass, woodwind or percussion - please join us for a relaxed evening of popular music. Adult tickets include a free drink on arrival and there is plenty of parking in the school grounds.
To book, follow the Charity Checkout link.

A member enjoys the Centre's garden
In summer months the Centre's garden is a peaceful area where members can relax and enjoy the colours and scents of the shrubs and flowers donated by local suppliers.
We can take up to 25 people a day; some members come just once a week whilst others attend nearly every day. Our members enjoy transport by volunteer drivers and the Readibus. Referrals come from the Health Centre, Social Services, Home Care, hospitals, friends and families. Some members are self referrals.
The day centre lounge
The Centre is open five days a week. On four of the days we offer full day care facilities with a freshly cooked, two course midday meal and members can join in a wealth of stimulating activities such as quizzes, crosswords, games and sing-alongs. A qualified instructor guides members through seated exercises to help mobility, balance and flexibility. On Thursdays we have lunch clubs for the more able bodied members.
We have a programme of services for carers who are looking for support, advice or just someone to talk to about their responsibilities in caring for elderly relatives or friends.
If you, or someone you know, feels isolated or lonely do come and talk to us. Don't worry if you have difficulty moving around - our dedicated staff have plenty of skills and experience in managing disabilities and can help members suffering from early stage dementia.
To all our members we offer companionship, care and the opportunity to make friends and share interests.
