Age Concern delivers a number of services that aim to achieve the following outcomes:

 

  • Reduce social isolation and loneliness and the significant detrimental impact this can have on physical and mental wellbeing;

  • Prevent elder abuse and neglect, and in doing so, move older people from a position of vulnerability to one of resilience;

  • Maximise the independence and enhance the ability of older people to meet the challenges of their changing needs.

  • Promote positive ageing strategies so all people can age in place and maintain our quality of life as we get older;

  • Inform local bodies and organisations on issues of concern for older people so they are represented in their communities.
