Working together to help the elderly
CHURCHES and charities are hoping to help more elderly people in Nailsea who feel isolated in their homes.
Churches Together in Nailsea is hosting a forum to discuss the provision of elderly services in the town and how it can be improved.
Representatives from Age Concern, doctors, social services and other charities will be attending to discuss the issue and offer some ideas.
Gary Woodall, pastor of Nailsea Baptist Church, said: “Nailsea’s population is getting older because there are fewer young families moving in and fewer older people moving out, so the need is going to increase.
“It’s a question of people feeling isolated in their homes and how do we work together to support them when their families live away.”
