Older Peoples Support Project

The Older Peoples’ Support Project aims to engage with older people who are carers and are not known to the services. This effects anyone who has recently become a carer or due to a loved one having an illness or disability diagnosed.

Once registered carers are provided with information, advice, support, training, leisure, social and respite activities with the aim of optimising the independence and wellbeing of older people and their carers in their own homes.

The Older Peoples Support Worker can provide one-to-one information specific to individual needs.

Older people who are carers and have been involved in the project so far have enjoyed fortnightly fun days at the Carers Cottage in Howard Park, weekly coffee mornings in the Carers Centre in Kilmarnock, Cumnock and Dalmellington House, cooking classes, self-help therapy classes, day trips, pamper days, garden parties and benefit checks and advice at registration. We also carry out full benefit checks to ensure all income is maximised.
