Senior Care Programmes

Senior Care Programmes

Our Senior Care Services offers support and companionship to the senior residents of our Locality. Please contact us for more information.

Older Adult Meal Service

We can deliver freshly made, three course dinners to older people in their homes 6 days per week. We telephone daily to chat about the menu and help them make a choice of meal. Meals are delivered to their door early twilight and can be served when required. Charges are applicable.

Befriending Services

For those experiencing social isolation and loneliness we can provide a range of befriending Services to suit your needs.

Wellbeing Connections

We will give you a 15-minute call weekly or twice weekly with a regular befriender matched to your interests. We will give you a short call checking in with you daily - six days per week. For those living with a disability or frailty we offer a twice weekly local shopping service. If you can’t make it to your local shop and have no other support mechanisms, we will deliver to your door a small five item shop for a small delivery charge.

Digital connections

If you are tech savvy, we will connect with you weekly by a Zoom or Facetime calls, whatever is your preference. We can connect digitally for a cuppa and a chat either individually or as a group. We regularly meet with our online group befriending sessions and you can meet-up other people with the similar interests.

Community Connector Befriender

Once per week for 12 weeks you will be matched with a volunteer befriender to take you out for two hours. We can take you to places of interest to you locally, to a club, an activity, for lunch, shopping or just out for fresh air and a wee blether.

Environmental Services

If you are with a disability you may benefit for being a member of our Garden Maintenance Club. For a small annual fee, you will receive a minimum 8 visits from our gardening team to help keep your grass and area tidy. During winter we will endeavour to keep your paths clear of snow and ice. For a small fee people living with a disability or frailty can get help with small jobs around the home. We will not undertake jobs which require a qualified professional.

Community Health Transport

This is a free service to carers, there is access to our transport scheme where we can assist with suitable transport to and from a hospital appointment.

Every help matters
