The Active Ageing Service visits older people in their homes and provides a support service to those who are aged 80-84. The team aims to enable older people to maintain independence and to promote dignity and quality of life in their own homes by offering health advice.
The team consists of Health Visitors and Health Visitor Support Workers who are based in the community. We are able to help people access services, such as medical, social, home environment and financial. We also support carers.
The Active Ageing Team works in partnership to help identify health needs and to signpost families to the services they may require in order to maintain independence.
