Service description:
Improving the quality of life for older people on low incomes, by offering a select range of practical services we actively encourage independent living in old age and help to combat loneliness.

Free 5 day Break-Aways:
In order to qualify for a Free 5 day Break-Away, you need to be over 65, on a low income, not have had a holiday for three years or more, and to be mobile enough to get on and off a coach.

Free TENS Machine:
For some older people a TENS Pain Relief Machine can be the difference between being alive and living a life. A TENS Machine is an electronic pain relief system, which can provide long-term pain relief for chronic conditions, such as arthritis. Painkillers are often not strong enough to dull the pain sufficiently but the TENS Machine, (which delivers small electrical pulses through electrodes attached to the skin by a small pad), can all but remove the pain entirely.

Free 'Check & Go' Telephone Alarm Systems Alarms:
If you're concerned about nobody being made aware if you fall ill or have an accident or emergency, then the Check & Go system is an ideal situation. The telephone has a 'check-in' button which you simply have to press within your designated times to let the Response Centre know that everything is ok.

Once you are a pensioner, there are a range of entitlements and services that you may be able to receive. By visiting our website you will find some of the main services and entitlements available to you. Benefits and services for carers are also included.
