We have published a report to show how initiatives such gardening, cleaning and shopping services; luncheon clubs and befriending schemes make a positive difference for older people.
‘Prevention into practice’ is a bilingual document that shows how the services provided by our local Age Cymru Partners make a real difference to older people in their local communities.
Victoria Lloyd, Age Cymru’s Director of Influencing and Programme Development says:
“High quality preventive services can deliver a wide range of positive outcomes for older people, organisations and systems.
“ ‘Prevention into practice’ provides a snapshot of the very wide range of preventive services provided by local Age Cymru partners across Wales.
“The report demonstrates how local Age Cymru partners meet Government aspirations of sustainable renewal and how they impact positively on the quality of life of older people.
“It also gives examples of outcomes that could be replicated throughout Wales in terms of prevention and early intervention.”
Prevention into practice is being launched tomorrow at the National Social Services Conference 2012 in Llandudno, but it is available to download now.
