Enabling older people to improve their lifestyle
What does this mean?
To Age UK Teesside 'older people' means anyone over the age of 50. We recognise that early retirement is a feature of life today, which with an expectation of a longer lifespan on a reduced income and a smaller social network can lead to difficulties.
We aim to improve lifestyles by:
- Helping to claim rightful entitlements to a range of benefits, so promoting financial security and stability
- Campaigning and lobbying on a range of issues of interest to older people
- Providing the opportunity to broaden social networks, meet new people and try something different
- Promoting healthy living
