A typical day might include choices of exercise classes, art and craft, singing and card games and quizzes. Many of our Day Care Centres also offer hairdressing, bathing and beauty treatments as well as a regular foot care service. Age Concern Hampshire's Foot Care service is also on offer at health centres, doctors' surgeries and community centres throughout the county. A home visiting service is now on offer in many areas.
Weekly exercise classes, computer training and craft are available at our Activity Centres which provide over-50s with a social hub for get-togethers during the week.
For those in rural areas, our Village Agent scheme directs people to the information they need on issues such as day care, transport for shopping and medical appointments, finding reputable tradespeople and help around the home. Meals on Wheels customers can benefit from our Food and Friendship service which provides company from a volunteer at meal across the county.
