WHAT WE DO?
What we do is to support older people who may be isolated, frail, vulnerable, have no one to turn to, and are overwhelmed by a problem affecting them i.e financial change, care needs have increased, partner has gone into a home or passed away, or they are not being listened to by Social/Health and other statutory services. Our aims are to support older people in their decision making and interactions in order for them to stay well and self-manage their own affairs, to ensure they exercise the same rights as other consumers, to prevent abuse and resist ageism.
