Service Referrals for Over 65s

The Trust’s Access and Information Service offers advice and information on a range of local services available to older people.  We provide a central point of contact, Trust wide, for:

  • Anyone aged 65yrs+, living in the Southern Trust area, who is struggling to complete daily living tasks independently or feels isolated and would like connected to local support services
  • A relative and/or carer seeking assistance for an older person who lives in the Southern Trust area
  • Anyone wanting to find out information or discuss referral pathways on services for older people in the Southern Trust area.

We work with frontline professionals to facilitate discharge from hospital, freeing up hospital beds by ensuring the necessary supports are in place at home.  Our team will also arrange services in the home to prevent hospital admission being required.

We refer into a range of services, both within the Trust and the community and voluntary sector.
