We had a lively talk from Kate Bartlett who is the Senior Project leader of the Living Well Service with AgeUK. Kate told us about the many things that AgeUK do in our area – Fitness and Friendship group, lunches, art, telephone befriending etc. Clients are referred to the Living Well Service by one of the health and social care team members within the GP surgery. The Service then finds the best way of supporting the individual for around 6 to 8 weeks.
AgeUK needs volunteers and if you would like to help please contact Kate or the TCOP team at the Surgery. You may think that you couldn’t do anything but most of us know how to talk on the phone!
