No One Should Have No one To Turn To

In Exeter over 7,000 older people live alone. Estimates show that around 2,000 OLDER PEOPLE IN THE CITY FEEL LONELY ALL OR MOST OF THE TIME! We believe that NO ONE SHOULD HAVE NO ONE TO TURN TO and throughout December we are running our Christmas Appeal. We really need YOUR help! Your support in helping us reach our Christmas Appeal target of £10,000 will allow us to sustain these services in the coming year and reach even more people who need our support. PLEASE DONATE what you can to help us improve the lives of isolated older people in Exeter. You can DONATE by clicking the PLEASE DONATE button in the top right corner of this screen.

Christmas Opening Hours

Age UK Exeter is closed from 2pm on Christmas Eve, and will re-open 11.30 – 2pm for lunches only on Thursday 27th, Friday 28th, Monday 31st December (last lunch orders 1.15pm) and Sunday 30 December (11.30 – 1pm). We will be closed on Tuesday 1st January before re-opening fully on Wednesday, 2nd January.

If you are worried about an older person over Christmas or you need help yourself:

  • Ring your GP surgery if it’s a health issue; if the surgery is closed you will hear a message asking you to ring NHS 111  - this is the route to accessing out of hours GP care via Devon Doctors.
  • For social care ring Devon County Council Social Services on their Care Direct number: 0345 155 1007
  • If you have an issue with your normal domiciliary / care team you should ring them directly in the first instance.  It is a good idea to ask them in advance what their Christmas contact and on-call arrangements are as their offices may be closed, and the duty person may only be available on a mobile phone number.

Have a very happy and healthy Christmas and 2019 from everyone at Age UK Exeter
