Older People's Services

Community Outreach

We offer emotional, social and practical support to give older people a sense of security in their own homes and when in the wider community. We believe in helping to build people’s confidence and in encouraging them to be self-sufficient, supporting them to live independently for as long as possible at home.

I can’t say how much I appreciate the service, both in going the extra mile for my mother and advising me on the way forward.
