Information and advice is the core of Age UK York. We can help with most issues affecting older people in York.
Many older people don't get the benefits they are entitled to. Age UK York will help you with the forms and provide advice on the range of benefits available including carer's allowance and attendance allowance.
More and more older people live alone in York. We provide a range of services including telephone befriending, volunteer befriending, day clubs, home visits and social activities.
We provide weekly support visits to people after they have been in hospital to ensure that your recovery goes well.
Age UK York has a care agency, a home cleaning service and a nail cutting service with vetted staff who can help you at home with these useful services.
Many carers of older people in York struggle to get a break. We provide respite care with either volunteers or paid staff to enable you to have a break knowing your loved one is in safe hands.
Many older people worry about their pets when they go to hospital. We run Keep your Pet in conjunction with the RSPCA and Age UK Selby so you don't need to worry whilst you are in hospital.
We are able to offer a simple will writing service and also Lasting Powers of Attorney.
