Services for older people
A useful guide to services and advice for the over 50s.
These days people retire from their 50s onwards to take on new and exciting opportunities. This can lead to a significant change of lifestyle and there is a lot to be considered; pensions, benefits, holidays and pastimes, part-time and voluntary work and suchlike.
Eventually of course the onset of age slows us all down and keeps us closer to home. It is then that many of us need a little help, to adapt our homes or to get around and to stay active and in touch.
The information under the following headings should help inform you what's available to our very important older generation.
