Age UK Smart Life

Smart Life is aimed at improving health and wellbeing and is available to patients of Lister House Medical Centre. I am holding monthly clinics in the surgery to see anyone over the age of 16 years who is struggling with benefits, or housing, or finances, or living independently in their home……… and making referrals to services and support. I also make home visits to people who are unable to get to the surgery.
I’m recruiting volunteers across the age spectrum to support vulnerable people who might be socially isolated, or have several long term conditions they are not managing very well or lack confidence. Working with the person, we identify goals that they will achieve over a 3-6 month period with the support and encouragement of a trained volunteer. This is a very rewarding and satisfying volunteering opportunity – seeing how the person’s confidence increases over time.
