Information and Signposting
We help lots of people every year to get information on services and organisations. Sometimes it can be an older person’s relative looking for information about how to navigate the Health and Care Systems or it can be older people who like to stay connected with us because we keep them informed of events and suggestions on how to stay well. There are lots of people who like to phone and know we will try to help.
