Age UK Bury offers a free and confidential information and advice service for older people, their families and carers.
How to access the service
Our Information and Advice service is now running at full strength and can help anyone needing relevant local information and advice on older people’s issues.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, Louise and Ruth are offering help by telephone and video conferencing.
When it is necessary to see people face to face, we can see people at the Jubilee Centre meeting room, where we have installed new screens to protect all parties.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Louise on 07872 067662 or Ruth on 07547 400142.
Our service is free but we welcome donations to keep the service up and running
Our information and advice officers are available Monday to Friday, 9.30 am to 4pm.
Topics we cover:
Our advisers are trained to help you on the following topics.
- Social care - such as finding a care home or getting some help at home, and how it's funded.
- Your income - including free benefits checks, help with applying for benefits and pension advice.
- Your home - information on staying warm at home, home adapatations and how to prevent falls.
- Legal issues - such as wills, Power of Attorney, and how to deal with an estate.
We are grateful to Bury Council and Age UK / EON for their support to our I&A Service.
Our national partner, Age UK, produces free information guides and factsheets on a wide range of topics, including home adaptations, dementia, and advice for carers. You can find a complete list of guides and factsheets on the Age UK national website.
