Community Support & Health Services
What kinds of things are the multi-agency Age Friendly Programmes doing to respond?
Piloting age friendly hospital and primary care centre programmes to support hospitals and primary care centres in identifying and adhering to age-friendly standards which contribute to their more ‘age-aware’ and efficient running.
Providing age friendly transport services bringing older people to and from key health and essential local services.
Delivering physical activity and healthy eating training and education programmes to support more active lifestyles, improve health status and lower rates of hospital admissions amongst older adults.
