Our Wellbeing Service is about ensuring that older people have the opportunity to lead the very best life they can.
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.
The free elements that make up Age UK Somerset's Wellbeing service
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.
