From John Bellany Day Centre
John Bellany Day Centre are very keen to expand its range of services to provide Outreach Support to our older population in Cockenzie, Port Seton, and Longniddry.
We see our role as providing social support, not medical intervention, as this type of service is offered by health and private agencies who already operate within these communities.
We are conscious that not all our older population have family, carer or neighbour support and may need others to assist them with e.g. shopping, making personal appointments and getting to them, domestic tasks or other items that they can no longer manage.
Family and carers may be providing daily support to a loved one and need some respite. A sitter service may be a useful option to alleviate some of the stress of constant care.
All of these and more may be items that you face daily.
We need to hear from you to tell us what would be helpful to you. Please do this whether you are supported by family/carer or live alone.
