Would you like to be able to rely on your neighbours to lend a helping hand? A new idea, based on creating older people's networks, promotes just that. And Putney Village is one of the first of its kind in the UK.
About Putney Village
We all want to stay in our homes for as long as we can, so it's important to look at things you can do and equipment to install to help you keep independent for as long as possible.
Doorstep scams are when someone comes to your door with the aim of scamming you out of your money. Make sure you know the signs of a scammer.
Nuisance calls and messages can be annoying, frustrating and quite frightening.
The amount that social services departments pay towards care varies depending on your local authority.
Carers have certain rights, and it's important that you know what these are.
Our vision is for all older people to be able to access the help they need to stay well and independent and to live in suitable housing, in age-friendly neighbourhoods, for as long as they want.
