A specialist centre for people 60+, adults with disabilities and dementia.

The Gwynneth Morgan Day Centre, operated by Age UK Wandsworth, is a purpose-built space for leisure, recreation and wellbeing. We take a person–centred approach, promoting independence and social inclusion in a safe, relaxed and warm environment.

Day Centre Service

Our kind, caring and experienced staff treat everyone with dignity and respect. The centre has a fully adapted kitchen, an exercise and games room, a reablement room, an IT suite, and an accessible garden. All our rooms are spacious and well-ventilated with natural light and large windows. Service users have options to engage in a social, friendly environment or relax in peace and quiet. Transport is provided on modern minibuses and service users can be assisted in/out of their homes. Times of pick up and drop off vary. There is space available for wheelchairs and walking chairs.

Specialist Dementia Service

Our Daffodil Room hosts a specialist dementia service for those with moderate and high needs dementia. This includes a magic table 360, an interactive projector that provides games, music and tranquil backgrounds. Experienced staff with specialist dementia training can personalise activities and games based on individual interests and needs.
