How Action for Elders can help the ones you care for

Action for Elders is a registered charity that works with family and friends, the carers, who make a real difference to the quality of life of the older people they care for, whatever their circumstances.

We also work closely with local healthcare groups to build happy and fulfilling lives for older people.

Caring for an older person can be a challenge. Finding places and people to help improve their lives can be even harder. But you’re not alone — we’re here to help you.

Why Action for Elders is the charity to turn to

Backed by research into the challenges of old age, Action for Elders has identified the benefits of groups that allow older people to rebuild their social lives, and activity to help them build strength and mental wellbeing.

Under the banner of our Balanced Lives and Better Together, our local groups offer practical support to the elderly to improve their lives, reduce loneliness and isolation and improve their physical health.

Anne’s Story

Anne is a lady who was the sole carer for her husband for many years until he died. Then she had a breakdown and was found wandering the streets after a fall. Put in a home she was depressed and not confident in herself or her mobility.

She joined our sessions. 12 weeks later she had a much more positive attitude to her situation, smiles and converses more. Her posture has improved and she waits eagerly for each new session believing that she can again begin to walk unaided with confidence.

Her progress was quite remarkable, we could take the full credit with our Balanced Lives programme, but Anne herself is the hero of this scenario. It was her determination and new found vigour that made the biggest difference.

From our Hereford Group

“Before Balanced Lives I could go for weeks without seeing anyone to talk to, so it’s changed my life completely,” said a lady from our Hereford group.
