Age Connects Torfaen has been awarded the Carer Friendly Advanced Accreditation! Age Connects Torfaen is a well-established third sector service supporting people and their carers over the age of fifty with dementia/or cognitive impairment, and those experiencing loneliness. They strive to improve the quality of life of Older People along with encouraging, empowering and promoting wellbeing whilst maintaining their independence. The team have put many services in place to support unpaid carers such as the Dementia Life Coaching sessions, their Flexible Respite Service and the Carers Survival Kit that they produced in response to Covid-19 lockdowns – providing carers with information about support that is available to them and a guide to support their wellbeing. Members of the Age Connects Torfaen Team attended supporting carers training workshop and have nominated a member of staff as a Carers Champion who will be a dedicated point of contact and will ensure that unpaid carers are considered throughout the organisations planning and delivery of its services.
