Th Health Age Friendly Homes Programme is a new national service involving several departments and there is a permanent member of Staff in city hall to work exclusively on this initiative.

The Healthy Age Friendly Homes Programme aims to support older people to live in their own home with dignity and independence, for as long as possible. The programme’s ambition is to enable everyone to live longer healthier lives by keeping care close to home and expanding the range of health and social care services in the community. It is about providing a range of alternatives for older people who may otherwise transition into long term residential care prematurely.
