Age UK Plymouth
Age UK Plymouth exists to care for and work with older people and their carers in and around the City of Plymouth to improve their quality of life through the promotion of choice, opportunity and independence.
We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.
We offer a range of services to help older people feel more included in the community. Our current aim is to try and tackle loneliness in the Plymouth area through numerous activities and one off events.
|Hospital Discharge Service||Our Discharge Service exists solely to support the journey to independence by offering a high-quality, flexible and free short term service tailored to suit individual needs and aspirations. Our fully trained and experienced teams deliver a safe and caring service with an emphasis on promoting independence, social engagement, good health and wellbeing.|
