The Promoting Independence Service
Promoting Independence is a support service helping older people to live happier and more active lives, no matter the health challenges. Age UK Norwich is working with GP surgeries and health professionals in Norwich to identify people who may benefit from this support. Our staff and volunteers can help individuals who have had a change in circumstance such as a change to their health, a bereavement, or a move to a new home. A staff member will arrange to visit to discuss what changes you would like to make and how we may overcome any barriers. For example we can support with finding social activities in your area and with attending these until you feel comfortable to attend independently. We have also been able to support with understanding health information, managing appointments, and accompanying people on walks to improve their confidence. Each goal however is individual to the person. We work together for up to 12 weeks with the aim of improving your independence and sense of wellbeing and to find ways to maintain these in the long term.
If you wish to be referred to the service please contact your G.P surgery
