“I have been coming to Interactive club for years. I lost my husband when I was very young and I brought up my children on my own. I used to be very healthy and do my house work, but now I have poor health and can’t do much and I used to get depressed and get more stiff, I was thinking about the past and getting more depressed  and my friends told be about age UK interactive clubs. I started going to the club and my health has improved  by joining in to do exercise , I have gained knowledge  by discussions like about healthy eating. It gives me a reason to get ready to come out’’ – Mrs Patel, a beneficiary of Age UK, Hillingdon, Harrow, and Brent

We support those who are predominantly 65 + who live in the London borough of Hillingdon and are in or have recently been discharged from hospital, and have done so for more than 20 years. Our A&E evening service (5-10pm 7 days a week) has been up and running for in excess of 15 years with the aim to support those who come in to A&E and their family members/carers who may have accompanied them, but more so to support those who have attended alone or via the ambulance service.

The team liaise with medical staff, ambulance service and friends & relatives of the patients they care for, making a call to a next of kin who may not know that their loved one has been brought in to the hospital. Making the patient a warm drink and getting them something to eat (if they are allowed), spending time chatting & reassuring them, chaperoning & escorting to wards with the porters or home in a cab is all part of the brilliant and useful work they do.

“I have Macular Degeneration and shopping was becoming a nightmare!  Then I heard about Help at Home service and it has been such a great help to have someone getting me fresh food every weekly’’

Mrs M, Ruislip

“My family are happy I now get regular help; I enjoy the help and company- the girls are always cheerful and happy to help’’

Mrs S, West Drayton

“I have arthritis in my feet and ankles so having someone to do my weekly shopping is a great help as pushing a trolley is very painful for me ‘’
