The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Colin Rayner, was the guest of honour at the Sequela Foundation Therapy Centre.
He spent time chatting with volunteers and members at the Grove Park facility in Waltham Road finding out more about the work that goes on.
The centre, established by Pat Capp, offers free social support and therapies such as reflexology and massage for people living with neurological conditions including Parkinson's disease and dementia.
"It went fantastically," said Pat following the visit on Tuesday.
"He gave a lovely talk about his role over the last year and how much it had touched him.
""He just thanked us all for what we were doing and how important it was."
The centre relies on the goodwill of about 10 volunteers who give up their time to help a growing membership of more than 40 people.
It was officially opened by Home Secretary Theresa May in March.
