A new support coordination service for older people was launched in Swords recently. ALONE the charity that supports older people to age at home, has partnered with the HSE to expand its supports services to all older people living in our communities. The aim of the service is to respond and address any issues facing older people, which are impacting on their ability to remain living independently in their own home. Sean Moynihan, CEO of ALONE said, “Repeated studies have demonstrated that ageing at home is the first choice of older people and their families. Our support coordination service addresses issues faced by older people living in their own homes and works with statutory bodies, community organisations and other services providers to ensure that the older people get what they deserve.”
Mary Walshe, Head of Social Care HSE, said, “Support coordination services in the community are vitally important to empower and help older people to age well at home. It is their own choosing”.
For those who have concerns about their own wellbeing, or of a vulnerable older person, they can contact ALONE on 01-6791032
