Senior Citizens

‘You’re only as young as you feel’ the saying goes. For some old age is a very rewarding time but for others it can be a lonely experience. At the ABC we want you to enjoy your senior years and to be able to access the resources and help that are available.

Coping with bereavement - You may experience a range of emotional and physical symptoms after your relative or friend has died.

Information about the end of life - Our booklets and audio CDs talk about what might happen when someone is coming to the end of their life. Knowing what to expect could help you focus on what’s important to you.

Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies and work to enhance society’s care of bereaved people.

It is widely acknowledged that pets can positively benefit the well-being of elderly owners. For many elderly people living on their own, their pets are their reason for living.

They are constant companions - on hand 24 hours a day, every day, comforting, loving and protecting their owners - not only from outside threats, but also offering the more subtle form of protection from loneliness and despair.

Supported by a network of volunteers, Contact the Elderly organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people aged 75 and over, who live alone, offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.

We are committed to drawing older people out of isolation with our community activities. Our lunch clubs, social centres and community cafés are all ran by volunteers who provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our clubs have enabled older people to meet with older friends, make new friends and even learn new skills.

Whatever happens as we get older, we all want to remain independent and live life on our own terms. That’s why, as well as offering regular friendly contact and a strong campaigning voice, Independent Age can provide you and your family with clear, free and impartial advice on the issues that matter: care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.  

A charity founded over 150 years ago, we’re independent so you can be.
