Age UK Plymouth’s Active Living Service can help to enhance and enrich the lives of older people. It does this by offering a high quality and flexible service that is tailored to suit a person's individual needs and aspirations. We are piloting this enhanced service in Plympton from January-March 2021 enabling you to receive this support in the comfort of your own home or if you prefer, you can attend our group sessions at the Rees Wellbeing Centre, Mudge Way PL7 2PS from 10am-12 on a Friday. Our service includes help at home with domestic tasks, shopping, gardening, social activities, companionship and help with paperwork. We pride ourselves in supporting older people and their families to alleviate stress, anxiety and loneliness. By using a wealth of knowledge and a comprehensive training programme, our staff can deliver a safe and caring service - with an emphasis on promoting independence, social engagement, good health and wellbeing. We are here to listen to your needs, provide solutions and work together with you to support your future.  What is the cost? This is a chargeable service at £17 per session. A session is either 1 hour in your home or 2 hours in an Active Living Hub with refreshments. Not sure if you can afford it, why not let our Information and Advice team undertake a financial review to make sure you’re getting everything you’re entitled to?


We’re delighted to announce the Big Knit is back for 2021! So grab your needles and your brightest yarn and get knitting for Age UK Plymouth to help us be there for local older people.


Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) is an evidence-based short term intervention created for people with mild to moderate dementia.  Our group involves virtual therapy sessions made up of themed activities which will exercise various cognitive skills.  Research has shown that results show remarkable improvement in cognition and quality of life similar results to that obtained using anti dementia drugs.

Age UK Plymouth supporting older people across the city.


We have had to make some changes to how we provide support to older people and their carers in Plymouth but our staff and volunteers are still working to provide vital support to those who may be vulnerable, lonely or isolated.
