The Ascot District Day Centre has been a home from home for the elderly of Sunninghill, Ascot and Sunningdale for more than thirty years keeping elderly residents in the neighbourhood alert and active, by providing an opportunity to meet friends and to socialise, in a structured and safe environment.
A team of volunteer drivers transport members by minibus to and from the Centre.  Coffee is served on arrival and a hot two course meal at lunchtime with tea and biscuits in the afternoon.  Each weekday morning the Day Centre is a hive of activity with members playing darts or indoor bowls while others join in Tai-Chi or Chair Based dance classes, or quietly socialise in the conservatory with friends.  After lunch there are usually a few rounds of bingo, a quiz or a raffle, while others prefer a game of cards.

On Wednesday March 22nd at 2pm, Graeme Black of Bonnett's Solicitors, will host a talk to discuss the importance of Power of Attorney and Wills.


Signature Senior Lifestyle plans to build a new care home in Ascot, Berkshire. Construction is underway and it is anticipated that the care home will open
