The Maples Resource Centre Celebrates with Christmas Event

Reading Borough Council Press Release

A SPECIALIST support centre for older people in Southcote is relaunching with a festive celebration.

The Maples Resource Centre has been created following the merger of the Albert Road and Phoenix Day Care Centres and provides day care services to older people who need support to help maintain their independence. The Centre offers personal care, specialist assistance to those with poor mobility, respite support to carers and a variety of physical and social activities including yoga, drumming and quizzes.

The Centre’s users, their families and friends are being invited to the Christmas Event, where they can take part in the raffle and enjoy a nativity performance from Miller's Ark Animals.

Cllr Rachel Eden, Reading Lead Councillor for Adult Social Care says:

“The Maples Resource Centre provides quality, flexible day care and is an important part of enabling older people in Reading to live fulfilling lives as part of the community.

“I am looking forward to the Christmas nativity at the Maples and would encourage family and friends to come celebrate with us.”
