Services for older people
Here are a range of services available for older people, either to make them more comfortable and independent in their own homes, or to help them find accommodation more suited to their needs.
A 24 hour emergency monitoring system can help older and vulnerable people to remain living independently and safely in their own homes. It can be used for people who have a medical condition and can offer security and peace of mind.
This service is for people aged 18 and over, normally older people, who are unable to prepare and cook one hot meal a day. This may be a permanent situation due to sight loss, a physical or learning disability, illness or a temporary situation such as recovering after a stay in hospital, to help you maintain your independence and quality of life.
Community care means helping people to live as independently as possible either at home, in the community or in short or long term care. These services are available to people with a wide range of needs. Community care services are based on an assessment of needs of both users and carers. Individuals with more complex needs may receive a care management service.
