At Third Age Solutions Limited we are delighted to be joining eldernet! Bev is the founding director and is familiar with the types of challenges faced by seniors. This can also place a lot of stress on families who often live out of town and have their own responsibilities to cope with, or friends and neighbours who become concerned at seeing a decline in their friend's abilities. Bev's organisational skills come into their own when there are challenges to be worked through. She has a calm and friendly approach, and can be trusted to keep your best interests at heart. She is part of the 'sandwich generation' with an elderly father, adult children and a new grandchild who was born during lock-down! We look forward to keeping you updated on the services most needed and how we can help.
