The Community Older People's Team service is for individuals aged 65 years and over who live in West Dunbartonshire and require input from staff to remain at home.
Anyone can refer to these services including yourself, family members, someone who is looking after you, health and social care professionals and voluntary organisations. If someone is referring on your behalf we prefer they have your permission to do so.
Following an assessment the team can provide the help and support to adults and those who care for them, so that people can live as independently as possible in the community.
We can provide help with the following depending on individual need.
- Independent living
- Mobility - getting around
- Care at Home
- Exercise programmes
- Nursing care
- Falls prevention
- Arranging packages of care and community alarms
- Healthy living
