Our local communities provide a diverse array of engaging activities for older adults. Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to locate all the necessary information in a single source. At Home Instead South Lanarkshire, we were motivated to develop the Community Services & Wellbeing Guide, also known as “What’s on Where” (WOW).

We strive to fulfil our social responsibilities with utmost dedication. Similar to a compassionate home care provider, we aim to ease the challenges experienced by older individuals, their loved ones, and carers. Our goal is to offer assistance in overcoming feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

Receiving a dementia diagnosis can be a life-altering event for everyone impacted, but it is still possible to lead a fulfilling life with the condition. Similar to a compassionate carer, we strongly believe that engaging in community events and activities can have a significant impact. We strive to create an environment that promotes a sense of worth, connection, and support for individuals impacted by these circumstances.
