We fully understand the difficulties that will be faced by many of the older people in our community over the coming weeks. We want you to know that we are here for you. Age UK Maidstone are offering hot, freshly cooked, two course meals delivered to your door and ready to be served. We can also provide assistance with shopping and picking up prescriptions. We know how important it is in these dire circumstances for older people to have access to reliable advice, support and friendship.
Our Information and Advice and Befriending services will still be available over the telephone, or by post for those that are hard of hearing. If you require any help please contact us on the details below:
Call in Time Friendship Service
Call in Time is a free telephone friendship service for people 60 and over. We’ll match you up with a likeminded person who’s keen to make a new friend, and every week they’ll give you a call.
Not having someone to talk to regularly can be lonely, particularly if you’re used to sharing your home and time with others. A friendly, 30-minute chat on the phone every week can make all the difference.
For more information about how to access this service and the criteria, please follow this link.
