The north-east Shropshire Interdisciplinary Team (NESIT) covers the Whitchurch and Market Drayton areas. The team consists of health and social care professionals, including physiotherapists, occupational and speech and language therapists, social workers and nurses.
Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin is very much at the heart of the NESIT team; the coordinator and volunteers have a unique role in filling the gaps that other services cannot fill, which are equally important to gain the confidence and independence of the service user.

The south Shropshire Home from Hospital team consists of two Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin workers, supported by a team of volunteers.
The team can visit people on the hospital ward prior to discharge, and will assess the older person's needs before introducing a volunteer to support the older person in their own home.
