Our vision for older people is of â€śa better quality of life in a home of their ownâ€ť. This is our complete focus and we support this by:
1. Providing delicious nutritious meals from our Community Catering Meals on Wheels service,
2. Supporting 12 lunch clubs in Galway City and County to bring people together in their own communities for good food, company and access to supports & information
3. Providing community support for older people living in a number of housing clusters in Galway city.
We strongly support the introduction of a Fair Deal for Home Care so that older people can remain living at home for as long as they wish and are able to.
If a meaningful system of supports was made available i.e increased home help hours, assistance with daily living tasks, access to medical home care, good nutrition etc then staying at home longer would be a viable option.
