Situation

Deterioration of social, mental and physical wellbeing of older people who are unable to, or have difficulty in, going out.

Solution

It will provide an initial assessment to each client, then allocate a trained care worker and volunteers to support the older person in their own home. This will include friendship, risk assessment for eg trips, slips and falls, non personal care, eg changing bed linen, signposting to other agencies where appropriate and advocacy to access other services.
