The service is specially tailored for the over 50s and you must live in Cardiff or Penarth. Some of the services we provide are chargeable.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our service has been running since November 2013 and we have made 732 home visits in the first 12 months. From the feedback we have received the service has improved the well-being of so many older people across Cardiff and Penarth.
This also then has a knock on effect on the rest of the community with less people being admitted into hospitals for trips, slips and falls etc
