If you are struggling to get out and about because of loneliness or isolation then ‘Fit over Fifty’ can help you, thanks to a recent Lottery grant.
Their Chaperon project which been running for 4 years throughout Tameside is now available to those people over the age of 50 living in Gee Gross, Hyde.
The get-out-and-about programme offers 4 free visits lasting up to 2 hours each, travelling in the chaperon’s car. They will stay with you whilst you shop, visit the park, or indeed anywhere you wish to travel go, all they ask is a donation towards the fuel.
By expanding the chaperon service to the over 50’s in Gee Cross, the service will be available to those senior citizens who reside in Romiley and Woodley too.
The expanded chaperoned service will be starting in a few weeks time, so it’s important that you register with the scheme soon.
‘Fit over Fifty’ is a not for profit, social enterprise, community interest company based in Tameside, who provide a range of services to older people, including a companion service, domestic support, exercise sessions with social gatherings and a chaperon service; all for the over fifties. The aim of the organisation is to provide activities in order to help improve health and wellbeing and overcome isolation.
Fit over Fifty’s overall aim is to provide tailored services to support elderly citizens’ needs and help them remain independent in their homes. Their services are delivered by caring and compassionate people who are highly trained, giving their clients total peace of mind.
