Age UK

We are working with Age UK to try and improve the wellbeing and quality of life for older people over the age of 50 living with a long term condition.  By long term condition, we mean congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, asthma, mental illness, cerebrovascular disease or renal (kidney) disease

Our clinicians will identify patients who they feel will benefit from the services and input of Age UK and with their consent refer them for support.  The Age UK personal independence worker will then contact the patient and arrange to visit them at home and identify what assistance is required as part of a guided conversation.  This could be anything from arranging community transport to social activities to prevent isolation and loneliness, or even help in claiming financial assistance

If you would like to be referred to this service, please speak to your GP at your next appointment and we can arrange a referral
