- Collecting prescriptions
- Helping you to do gentle exercises: for example, walking short distances
- Checking that you have enough food and drink and that your home is warm
- Providing you with information and advice about other services that you may require

If you are aged 60-plus and are about to come out of hospital (or have recently returned home) you can contact the service. Referrals are also welcome from family members, social workers, health professionals or care providers.
