Age UK Hythe and Lyminge offers lots of services for older people and their carers.

We manage two centres (one in the coastal town of Hythe and the other in the rural village of Lyminge) and serve people in the surrounding areas in their own homes.

We provide an extensive range of flexible and personalised services - a "one-stop shop" - developed from our long experience of the needs of older people.

Please download a leaflet.

All our staff are committed, caring and fully trained.

Collectively, our team has a wealth of experience so we always know what to do in a crisis.

For all services and enquiries call 01303 269602
