Introduction

Living at home, and staying connected to your community is the goal for many older people. With the right support this is usually possible.

In this section you will find products, services and operators that have the older person in mind. You won’t have to sift through information looking for services that are relevant; every listing here has relevance.   Here you will find: travel and tours, special ‘gadgets’ and items to help with everyday life, driving services, professional services and those who can help you around the house and garden to name just a few.

We also offer two helpful checklists below to help you when it comes to making decisions about these types of services.
