Age Well gives older people the support they need to look after their own health and wellbeing
Integrated Care Across Northamptonshire (iCAN) is a partnership of Health, Adult Social Care and the voluntary sector:
The Age Well teams are made up of staff from Age UK Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire Carers, Northamptonshire Health Foundation Trust's Community Nursing Team and the Adult Social Care Teams in North Northamptonshire Council and West Northamptonshire Council.
- We are working to improve the quality of care provided to older people in Northamptonshire.
- We provide the support that will enable older people to maintain their independence and resilience for as long as possible.
Our teams across the county
Age UK Northamptonshire has 12 Age Well Coordinators based in Corby, Daventry, East Northamptonshire, Kettering and Wellingborough and Northampton.
We provide emotional and practical support to people age 65+ who have one or more long-term health conditions, enabling them to live independently in the community.
Our Coordinators work in a task centred way, primarily with older people who are at risk of hospitalisation or becoming dependent on statutory and/or institutional care. With our support people can regain their confidence and have more control over their lives.

Encouraging collaborative working
93-year old Sylvia was living independently but after hurting her wrist she was unable to lift her shopper down the large step at the front door and was effectively housebound.
After Sylvia’s GP referred her to our Age Well team, things took a turn for the better. The outdoor ramp that she had been waiting years for was finally installed.
