Changing Lives in Cornwall is a partnership of voluntary groups and state services providing schemes like; Steady On (provides ‘buddies’ to help older adults with balance issues); Get Well Stay Well (a support service for those returning home after a stay in hospital) and
Memory Café (a place for those who suffer from or care for older adults with dementia).
This holistic approach to local service provision is working well. And older people aren’t just the recipients of services; they also get involved in providing support.
