Age UK Faversham and Sittingbourne have centres based in Sittingbourne, Faversham and Teynham. We provide a welcoming atmosphere, and a culture that champions independence, dignity and choice.
About our Centres
At our centres you can meet new people and make new friends. We will make sure that you receive a warm welcome and feel comfortable. The centres are lively and there is always something going on, however, there is also a place for those that prefer quieter pursuits and there is no pressure to join in any of the activities if you choose not to.
Activities we regularly hold at the centres include gentle chair based exercise, sing alongs, quizzes, arts and crafts, and bingo. There are also card and board games available for those that like to play these.
A two course, freshly cooked lunch is served daily. We use fresh local meat and vegetables and prepare the meals in our own kitchen. We can cater for most diets and food intolerances. There is a coffee bar for snacks and drinks to eat on the premises or to take home.
We offer door-to-door transport if needed, in our own wheelchair accessible minibuses with tail-lifts. You can choose to make your own way to the centre and stay for the whole day, come along just for lunch, or drop in for companionship, whichever suits you.
At all 3 centres you will have your own keyworker who will get to know you and ensure that we offer you the right level of support.
We organise a number of trips throughout the year to places that centre clients have suggested. Recent trips have included: shopping, pub lunches, garden centres, boat and coastal trips.
Access to other services
At all 3 of our centres we have on site hairdressing, chiropody and basic foot care & nail care, these are all offered at subsidised prices.

Day services for People Living with Dementia
We provide day opportunities for older people living with Dementia. We will work with you to help maintain and stimulate existing skills and memories using music workshops, art activities, cognitive and light physical games, conversation and other activities.
Located in a secure and homely setting, the staff work closely with each person. In a warm and friendly atmosphere our staff care about each individual and take the time to ensure that everyone's needs are met.
You can also see our COGS Club service for information on our other Dementia services.
