People Age 60+
We provide two services to tenants age 60 and above.
Older People's Wellbeing Service
The Older People's Wellbeing Service helps people manage their tenancy if age related health and mobility concerns reduce their confidence. We ensure regular contact so that people can live independently and at home in their community.
This can include helping arrange repairs or adaptations, accessing money and benefits advice, providing updates about events and activities or getting help from other services.
The Intervention Service provides tailored support when someone's unwell; providing assistance until they recover or longer term arrangements can be made.
The Intervention Service is free and open to everyone living in North West Glasgow (not just Queens Cross tenants).
If someone is very ill and has no-one to help we can support them after a fall, dealing with a hospital stay and when they're discharged. We can collect people to help them home from hospital, settle them in, get shopping and prepare food.
We assist social work and NHS professionals who are working with older people.
Support normally lasts around six weeks and works to build an individual's capacity and resilience.
