Community services for older adults

Supporting older people to connect with their wider communities

As we age, some of us can find ourselves becoming more reclusive. Family may have moved away, friends pass, and our own health starts to fail. Core to Selwyn’s charitable mission is to care for those over the age of 65 who are lonely or socially isolated.
