Community Agents Essex
Community Agents Essex is a countywide network of agents and volunteers who support older people and informal carers to find and develop independent living solutions from within their local community. A community Agent will visit you at home to discuss help with; Mobility issues - where equipment, adaptions or technology could support independence, or where travel, social interaction and physical activity could sustain and improve well-being. Practical living skills - after a significant life-event, such as bereavement or hospital stay supporting people to gain or regain practical skills such as paying bills, taking medication or getting appointments. Social inclusion - connecting people in a one-to-one and group interactions or activities; or supporting the use of technology-based interaction and social media. Healthy living - enabling or supporting people to prepare meals or linking individuals into community activities such as lunch clubs. Caring for someone - for people new to caring or for people who have been caring for some time and struggling to cope in their changing role. Helping them to access practical support, information, advice and peer support. Individual resilience - by providing information and support that ensures correct entitlement to benefits, pension and increases personal safety and security.
