Services for Seniors
Golden Lives

“Golden Lives” is our CV-19 crisis response for older people.

Golden Lives” Crisis Response targets older people with a BAMER specialism which is crucial at this time as people from BAMER communities are being evidenced as being disproportionately affected by the CV-19, therefore the older categories have dual vulnerabilities.

Embrace UK offers On-line/Digital Community activities including: -

1. Social Digital Development to alleviate isolation:
  • On-line coffee mornings to make social connections.
  • Befriending [On-line]: volunteers will facilitate older people’s abilities to access on-line befriending and services / support.
  • Befriending group development.
  • Fun quizzes, games and arts / crafts.
The social development programme will be delivered through finding new ways to engage using social media.

2. Personal Development: initiating and co-ordinating training to improve skills and promote an occupational therapy approach:
  • ESOL; informal / conversational English language lessons [1-1 and in groups].
  • Advice & Advocacy: development of an on-line service to ensure older people have financial support e.g. personal budgets / direct payments, benefits and pensions.

3. Health Development & Support: developing a full programme of activity which will include:
  • Exercise activities developed on-line in groups.

These activities can be taken in the comfort of your home.
