A world where no-one is unfairly disadvantaged or excluded because of age or infirmity and where every person can enjoy life as they age.
“I appreciate having the same care every time”
Age concern Poole is a local organisation which provides helpful services for many of the elderly residents in Poole. They have been operating for over 30 years and, in that time; they have helped to improve the lives of many elderly and vulnerable people in the area.
One of the many services Age Concern offer are the Pop Ins which are located in various churches, halls and homes in the district. These sessions allow for elderly residents to congregate in a safe, friendly environment where they can socialise and take part in a number of fun activities.
The amazing staff (comprised mainly of volunteers) organise a variety of different events including parties, lunches and bingo sessions for the residents on a weekly basis. Tea and biscuits are always available in abundance and they also organise a Christmas lunch every year to celebrate the festive season.
The pop-ins provide a perfect setting for residents to catch up with one another and discuss memories, and Age Concern’s team are always around to lend a helpful hand should they be needed.
Each session requires just a small entry fee; however, there are no membership or subscription charges required for any of the pop-ins as they are not intended to be a club. As a result, residents do not face any form of obligation and they may attend as many or as few pop-ins as they wish.
