Age Concern Bracknell Forest provides a much loved and valued service for the community.
Age Concern Bracknell Forest (ACBF) works independently from any national charity to support elderly people across Bracknell (and wider). We have a day centre facility specialising in delivering quality care for those suffering from dementia. We are one of only a small handful of local centres that operates a securely locked building putting carers and relatives’ minds at ease their loved one is safe. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional care, and a strong activities roster that keeps our members active and engaged. Our members and their individual needs are the primary focus and drive for our charity as we believe people matter. We also have a weekly “Wednesday club” operating to combat and reduce social isolation for older people in the community. The Charity is over 50 years old, registered with CIO status.
Our day centre has the capacity to support 24 people per day, five days a week. For a person with dementia, diagnosis attracts stigma, social isolation and personal discrimination, we combat that giving them a safe and secure space, free from judgment that is active and stimulating as well as ensuring basics like eating and drinking are monitored and medication is taken. Our weekly “Wednesday Club” has between 30 and 50 people per week in attendance. Socialization is the key to a healthy mind, especially for an elderly person. We believe the mind is just as important as the physical body. Once an elderly person stops socializing, they withdraw and become lonely and isolated. Social activities can also help people reduce stress and anxiety, which is what ultimately leads to lower blood pressure levels and we want our members/clients to feel they still have valuable space in our community.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
Our predominant focus for the money raised will be to continue to be able to operate our excellent care for the elderly and our mini-bus scheme that without clients would struggle to access our provisions. With costs ever-increasing for this provision, we need your help.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
