Support for people aged 50 or over with one or more long-term health conditions, including frailty.
What does the service offer?
The Later Life Project brings together voluntary, health and care services in Northamptonshire to provide an innovative combination of medical and non-medical support. A Later Life Co-ordinator from Age UK Northamptonshire will discuss what matters to you most and create a plan for the future with personal goals.
These goals could include physical and mental health needs, medical care and support, hobbies and interests and legal issues. It can also include helping you get information and advice and supporting your family and friends.
The Later Life Co-ordinator will act as your link with all the services that are available in your area, enabling them to improve the co-ordination and quality of care and support you receive.
We can help you

We can focus on your:
