The priorities and needs during the Covid 19 pandemic for older people shifted to food supplies, prescription collection, access to health & social care services, safety, social interactions and being updated with Government guidelines.
The coronavirus has meant that Age UK Westminster has had to expand its activities to provide more personal social contact and delivery services to the vulnerable older people than ever before.
Majority of our services are now held virtually.
