The Saxon Day Centre is located in central Orpington and is a friendly, mainstream day care centre which is operated by Age Concern Orpington & District. We cater for elderly clients, including those who are physically frail and/or have early stage dementia and who are in need of a day out from their home environment, or whose carers need a day of respite. We are open from Monday to Friday and currently have capacity for up to 60 clients a day.
Our qualified, experienced, care staff are on hand to attend to all personal care needs. We have a dedicated dementia unit, assisted bathing facilities, a hair dressing salon and we provide a range of daily activities to support the physical and mental wellbeing of our clients.
We believe that the Saxon Day Centre offers the best quality elderly day care in the Orpington area.

On Saturday 20th May, 2017 we hosted the London Brain Project which is a social enterprise aiming to facilitate engaging and informed conversations about the mind and brain through art and science. The day was an art-science workshop for adults with dementia and their families, to explore conversations around living with dementia. You can find out more about the day on the London Brain Project website. The work made in the workshop will contribute to an exhibition about dementia in Summer 2017.
We will be hosting coffee mornings at Petts Wood Methodist Church on 26th August 2017. Please join us for coffee and cakes which will be on sale to raise funds for the Saxon Day Centre.
