Community Involvement

Community involvement

It is our mission to change the face of ageing and improve the lives of elderly people across the country.

The way we deliver our unique at-home care service is one of the ways in which we 'make a difference', but we are also committed to reaching out to the broader community.

Through our local offices we run a number of schemes and initiatives which take us to the heart of the communities we serve. Some see us sharing our extensive knowledge and best practice and others simply allow us to spread some happiness.

Protecting Seniors from Fraud

Incidents of scams targeting older people are increasing at an alarming rate, threatening to strip them of their assets, independence and trust. Our Senior Fraud Protection programme teaches people how to protect themselves and their loved ones from scams.

To help combat this distressing criminal activity we've worked closely with the National Trading Standards Scams Team to create bespoke training for our CAREGivers, giving them the skills to combat mass market scams, protecting older people in their local communities.

In addition to training our CAREGivers we've created a Senior Fraud Protection Toolkit, full of practical information around spotting and protecting yourself and your loved ones from scams. Find out more here.

Family Dementia Workshops

We worked with leading experts in Alzheimer's disease and other dementias to develop a City & Guilds accredited training programme for our CAREGivers, helping them to care for our clients living with dementia. We are glad to share our knowledge through our family dementia workshops with family members and the broader community.

Our Family Dementia Workshops are free to attend and focus on . Attendees are armed with effective techniques for managing challenging behaviours including refusal, delusions, aggression, false accusations, wandering and agitation.

Please contact your local office for further information on Family Dementia Workshops or visit our Alzheimer's and Dementia Care section for more information on caring for someone with dementia.

Be a Santa to a Senior

At Christmas, we like to spread a little happiness and our Christmas gift-giving scheme allows us to do just that! We work with local communities to identify older people who might not receive a git at Christmas and collect wrap and distribute gifts ready for Christmas Day.
