Julie Bourne from Age UK was our guest speaker at a recent coffee morning to talk us about the information and advice they offer for the over 55’s. This includes:
- A Home Checks service to minimize the risk of falling at home
- A Home Support service to help with general housework, shopping and preparing light meals (there is a charge for this service)
- A Befriending Service to link you with a volunteer who will visit or telephone you for a chat
- A Gardening Service to help you manage your garden (there is a charge for this service)
