Age UK Northamptonshire's purpose-built centre for day care takes clients from Northampton and the whole county.
It is open every weekday and our centre manager and her team run a range of activities and events, ensuring that our clients get the best out of their day with us. The Forget-Me-Nots, a separate group for clients with dementia, is also run at The Venton Centre every weekday.

Have a bath or shower
Our fully-trained care assistants can help clients have a bath or a shower at the Venton Centre.
- £2.50 if the client already pays for care
- Other visitors to the Venton Centre pay £5 by request and will need to provide their own assistant in the bath. This is available in the afternoon 1.30pm – 3pm.
We can arrange for a Footcare Agent to trim your toenails whilst you are at the Venton Centre. Please speak to the manager about this and they will let you know the cost.
Seated exercise sessions
Our staff are trained in running seated exercise sessions. These are held Monday to Friday and last 10 to 15 minutes. Clients are free to join in as they wish.
There is a fully-equipped hairdressing room at the Venton Centre where clients can have their hair done by freelance hairdresser Jackie Wood. Please contact her on 01604 604450 for prices and to make an appointment.
Come for a "taster day"
If you or a relative are thinking about day care why not join us for a day to see whether our day centre would suit you. Come meet our friendly staff and other clients at the centre. All you pay is £5 for your lunch. If you cannot stay for the whole session you are welcome to call by for a cup of tea and a chat with the manager.
