However, for many older people, this can be difficult to achieve due to problems such as inadequate income, poor housing and isolation. Negative attitudes and stereotyping often mean that they are not valued in their communities.
Age UK Croydon provides vital Home Services, which focus on the needs of older people in the Croydon Borough, as follows:
Home Help Service
Nail Care Service
Supplying and fitting KeySafes
All of our Home Services are available to anyone living within the London Borough of Croydon, but priority may be given to people over 55.
