Important information

This time of year, is always hard for older people. Cold weather and shorter days make it difficult to stay connected to others – and many face difficulties meeting winter heating bills. But, at the close of what has been, for many, a terrifying and isolating year, older people are looking ahead to a Christmas like no other in living memory. Now, more than ever, no one should have no one. We cannot let older people suffer alone. Not this year. Not ever.  We are here to help and can be  contacted by phone or by email:  Age UK North, South & West Dorset: 01305 269444  Email:

The Herbert Protocol

The Herbert Protocol is a simple risk reduction tool to help the police in their search for people with Dementia who go missing. It encourages carers or family members of adults living with dementia to collate information on those who are vulnerable on to the Herbert Protocol form, which can be given to the police if they go missing.

Our Services

Expert advice

We offer you free, confidential and expert advice through our information service. If you need to know about social care, housing, scams or legal issues, we are here to help.

Help at Home

Do you need a little bit of support to stay independent in your own home? We recognise that a little bit of help with day to day tasks can go a long way towards helping older people remain in their homes for longer.

Foot Care

Are painful feet making you feel unsteady on your feet? Healthy, comfortable feet are essential especially for older people. We have a nail cutting service available to older people across rural Dorset.
