Age Space – Taking Care of Care

In carrying out our research for Web of the Week we were delighted to come across an organisation called “Age Space” which, like us, clearly puts helping older people benefit from the internet at the forefront of its mission.

Age Space is a free one-stop online resource and guide for anyone with concerns about, or caring for an ageing parent or relative, neighbour or friend.

It provides free expert advice and guides on elderly care, friendly chat, local information and top tips on things like quality of life, dementia, legal issues and money – the key objective being to help elderly people enjoy life and stay independent and healthy for as long as possible.

It was set up by Annabel James after her mother had a stroke a few years ago and she was overwhelmed by the complexity and bureaucracy associated with trying to find some help for her parents.

After starting in Dorset, Age Space has established a network of local online hubs, including ones in Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, Cambridgeshire and Cheshire.

There is some really great stuff on the Age Space website not just about care but also about other ways that people can get help and support and lots more.  Just click here to have a look – www.agespace.org
