Our Services - March 2023
Later Life Choices Glenrothes (LLCG) is currently operating 4 Day Sessions a week and a Help to Stay at Home Service for older people (age 65+).
These are held at Napier House (300 Napier Road, Glenrothes, KY6 1BF), and run from 11 am to 2 pm Mondays to Thursdays - Mondays & Wednesdays are our dementia groups ('Iris Groups') and Tuesdays & Thursdays our Active Ageing groups ('Sunflower Groups').
A two course lunch is served at the sessions, and transport is provided unless you prefer to make your own way here.
There is a nominal charge per session.
Help to Stay At Home Visits
These are one-to-one inhouse visits lasting one hour, and two hour visits allowing for outings in the community.
The visits provide tailored support as a preventative measure at the point where there is a potential need for long-term care or hospital admission. The service can be part of a multi-agency support package and can be both practical and emotional support. This service supports older people living with illness, dementia, disability, or other difficulties in life.
There is no charge for these visits.
We aim to give people as much choice and flexibility regarding the activities we can provide at our sessions and during home visits.
Examples of activities are: -
Befriending / Chatting
Reminiscence / Life Story Work
Cognitive Stimulation Activities
Going for a walk
Games – Dominoes, Cards, etc
Practical support including help with bills, correspondence, etc
Signposting to other services
It should be noted that LLCG cannot provide a regular shopping or cleaning service, but can assist with sourcing this help for you.
The safety of our clients, staff and volunteers is our number one priority and staff and volunteers are required to follow all relevant LLCG Policies & Procedures and Operational Guidelines.
In relation to Covid-19 we adhere to the latest guidelines provided by the Scottish Government, NHS Fife (Public Health), The Fife Health & Social Care Partnership and any other relevant organisation. Risk Assessments are in place for each client and reviewed/updated regularly.
All activities carried out with clients will need to meet current guidelines and will therefore be subject to change at short notice.
People referred to our services are required to meet the following criteria:-
Isolated (or carer respite is required)
At risk of physical and mental decline
Showing signs of vulnerability
Our services are for older people living in their own homes who are unable to get out and about. Older people who are generally still able to go out independently do not meet the criteria for our services, however, each referral will be evaluated on its merit.
Please note that we cannot support people with any personal or physical care requirements at this time. This includes toileting, dressing, administering medication, eating, drinking, beauty treatments, etc.
