Supporting older people in Somerset and North Somerset
Age UK Somerset is an independent local charity with the goal of enabling all older people in our area to live later life to the full. Whether you’re on a quest to live well into old age, going through tough times or struggling with the cost of living, get in touch. We're only a phone call away and we are here to help.
Because growing older is a different experience for everyone, the Wellbeing Service offers a range of different elements - such as Walk and Talk, Wellbeing Friends, Friendly Phone Calls and Chat and Map - to help individuals feel less lonely, always listened to and given the tailored support they need to improve their quality of life.
This free programme offers a holistic approach to solving the issues that may be affecting the quality of life of an older person. An appointment starts with a chat to help map what daily life is like for individuals and ends with solutions to make daily life better.
Our free Wellbeing Friends programme is available for older people in Somerset and North Somerset who feel isolated or lonely but for whom our Walk and Talk programme is not the right solution. It matches a client with a volunteer who will visit each week for a friendly chat.
Promoting physical activity for mental and physical health and wellbeing, our Ageing Well service usually runs more than 150 exercise classes each week. Some of our community classes have restarted, and we also continue to offer some online sessions for those who wish to stay fit at home.
We are delighted to introduce our second Guide to Later Life in Somerset and North Somerset, packed full of useful information to help you navigate later life.
If you need any information that we provide (factsheets, posters, leaflets, etc), in a different format, please contact us:
Telephone: 01823 345610
Post: Age UK Somerset, Ash House, Cook Way, Taunton, Somerset TA2 6BJ
As part of providing documents in another way, we will need to send you messages or documents. Please let us know how you want us to send messages and documents to you and which format you would prefer, for example large print or audio recording.
