The popular LILY (Living Independently in Later Years) Advisors have now been out in the community for six months.
They have been having regular stands in all the libraries locally and have been out and about giving talks and taking information out all over West Norfolk and Swaffham.
They hold regular sessions in GP surgeries and hospitals and will also be having information stands in Alive Leisure Centres.
The 29 advisors are from four local charities; West Norfolk Befriending, West Norfolk Carers, West Norfolk Deaf Association and West Norfolk Mind and have a wealth of knowledge and experience.
They are also available for home visits to help older people, their families, friends and carers to find information, local organisations and social activities, using mobile technology.
Details of where the advisors will be can be found in the ‘LILY in your community’ section of the LILY online directory.
LILY Advisor, Lorraine, from West Norfolk Deaf Association, said “People often say they are not old enough for LILY but when they see the wide range of information and all the social activities on the online directory they soon change their mind! They don’t realise what support is available for them and they love that they can talk to us face to face.”
The LILY online directory includes information on health, money matters, looking after someone, volunteering, dementia guidance and help for older people to continue living safely and independently in their own home.
