Elderly Care

Fallproof Barnsley

As people get older, it can be a little bit harder to do some of the things we take for granted doing every day. While this is a normal part of getting older, there are lots of things we can do to make sure that people over the age of 65 can do to reduce the risks of falls.

#FallProofBarnsley is here to provide information for how people and their loved ones can make small changes to stay happy and healthy at home.

Care in Kent

We all want our elderly loved ones to be able to stay in their own homes for as long as possible, and Care in Kent do their best to ensure that can happen by helping out with household chores and the shopping, and even by popping in as often as they can for a cuppa and a chat.
