Older and Wilder is a social group  of older lesbian and bisexual women  who live, work or socialise in the Bradford district.  We meet every fortnight in an exclusive social space at the Equity Centre in Bradford on a Wednesday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm.  Members each bring a small amount of food and we share a meal together.

We are a friendly and welcoming group and have  activities planned for every other session and sometimes for other days in between. 

Each member makes a small contribution of £2 per session. This goes towards the cost of refreshments, donations to the Equity Partnership for the hire of the centre and to support the requests and activities of the group.

Members suggest subjects of particular interest to our group and we devise our own programme of activities, including topics such as:
• informative speakers/workshops on internet fraud, dementia and other health care matters
• varying levels of gentle physical activity, from yoga to seated exercise to more active but relaxed dance classes
• entertaining and educational presentations on garden or exotic birds; lesbian film screenings and facilitated discussions. For more information please contact.

A free telephone friendship service

Living on your own can be hard to adapt to - particularly if you've been used to sharing your home or time with others. Not having someone to talk to regularly can be lonely and isolating. And that's when a friendly chat on the phone can make all the difference.

Call in Time is a free telephone friendship service run by Age UK. Since 2005 the service has matched hundreds of older people with trained and supported volunteers who, together, enjoy a weekly phone chat about anything from the weather to what's been going on in both their lives.

Our volunteers and the people they call often become firm telephone friends in the process. The calls provide valuable on-going weekly telephone contact to develop a trusted, true friendship.

In safe hands organiser: 01904 627995

Monday to Friday 09:30 to 3:30

The care worker could accompany the older person on activities like walking, playing bowls, playing snooker or visiting a pub, coffee shop or garden centre. The venues are agreed between the carer and the In Safe Hands Care Organiser on home and introductory visits. How is the arrangement set up? When a request for help is first made, the Care Organiser arranges to visit the older person and their carer in their own home. Then a care worker will be introduced and details of the arrangement talked through and set up at that meeting. The arrangement will go ahead after that and the Care Organiser will phone both the worker and the carer after the first arrangement to see how it went. 

The time the care worker spends with the older person is free to the carer. The carer is asked for the cost of the activities that the older person and care worker take part in during their time together which includes the cost of fares or 40p a mile for petrol. In addition the carer pays £3 for every visit to cover the worker’s journey to and from the house.

The care wokers are carefully selected people with a wide range of skills. Three references will have been taken up, including one from their GP and they will also have been checked by the Criminal Records Bureau. Many of the workers have been carers, personally or professionally and we offer them ongoing appropriate training.

We aim to offer 2 hours a week on a regular basis.

We employ several care workers to accompany older people with dementia on activities away from their own home. This increases their social contact and gives a carer a break.

Monday to Friday 09:30 to 3:30

Our In Safe Hands service offers short breaks to caring relatives and friends who look after an older person. 

After an initial home visit by one of the Care Organisers, we look for a volunteer to take the place of the carer so they can have a break.

Sitting during the day or evening: A volunteer sits with the older person at a time that suits both the carer and the person being cared for, on a regular or occasional basis.

Night sleeper: A volunteer stays from 8pm–8am (or as needed) to give the carer a much needed night’s sleep.

Live-in care: A volunteer lives in the home of the older person whilst the regular carer has a short break.

Pop-ins: A check visit lasting between one and two hours.

Depending on the availability of a suitable volunteer, they do some of the things that the regular carer would do e.g. companionship, preparation of simple meals, toileting, moving and handling, coping with incontinence, dementia and confusion How quickly can an arrangement be made? Where the volunteer is not known to the family they will need to be introduced, so the more notice you can give us, the better. Where the volunteer does know the family, an arrangement may be possible at short notice, depending on the volunteer’s availability. 

Day sitting: 1 hour £6.00, 2 hour £8.50, then £2.00 for each subsequent hour

Sleeping night: £26 per night

Waking night: £50 per night

Live-in care: £40 per 24hr period + travel

Help towards charges may be available in cases of need.

 

Our In Safe Hands staff provide information and advice on a wide range of issues that affect older people and those who care for them.

The group is run by volunteers from Dementia Friendly Keighley and Keighley Rotary with some support from the Alzheimer's Society. Singers meet others with similar experiences and can join in as little or as much as they wish.


This is a fun group and there is always a lot of laughter and sometimes a few tears, singing many different styles of songs that evoke memories and encourage conversation. People with dementia who have communication problems often find that the music helps to enhance their communication.
Songs with actions and the use of percussion instruments help with movement and co-ordination. 

The 'Teapot' part of the group is about as important as the singing. Half way through the session we have a break when delicious home-made cakes are served with tea and coffee. This provides an important opportunity for social interaction and it is during this time that people really get to know and support each other.

The session is free and open to all people with memory problems and their carers.

Gives our members the opportunity to talk about their life experiences and our trained volunteers are there to help record a person’s past and present life with the aim of using this life story to benefit them now and in the future.

The potential benefits of Life Story Work as an intervention for people with dementia and their families have been recognised for some time, in terms of promoting individualised care, improving assessment, building relationships between care staff and family carers as well as improving communication. 

At BIADS we love helping our members create their own life story books because we get to know the person behind the diagnosis and that is always a great privilege for us.  Matched with a volunteer, our members are given the opportunity to create their own life story book as a way of capturing their past, acknowledging the present and preparing  for their future.

Referrals are through BIADS Carer Support Service and Activity Services for those people with dementia who it is thought would benefit from this opportunity.

Qdos Creates provide Relax and Revive workshops for carers and those affected by dementia ,unlocking creativity and developing confidence and self esteem through a range of creative mediums. The sessions consist of a mixture of movement, drama, music and song, creative writing and poetry. These activities are used to draw out creative ideas and tap into memories in order to help participants express themselves as an individual and build new relationships and/or re connect people with their families and/or communities.

Qdos Creates work with the elderly has proved very successful in all settings as it allows participants a chance to show their talents and celebrate their individuality. This is particularly important to older people and those with dementia  as they are often victims of isolation and discrimination. The activities give them a vehicle to express themselves and this often improves their overall wellbeing and health.

Barnsley memory service provides a single point of access, for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of people with memory problems.

Senior community dementia workers offer diagnostic assessment incorporating risk, ongoing evaluation and review of people’s needs to enable people to maintain their optimum independence at home. When people are first diagnosed, we offer education and information to them and to their carers to help them make plans for the future. They are supported by community dementia workers who provide further support in the later stages of illness, act as liaison to nursing and residential homes and navigate people through the range of support services available. Dementia support workers help people to live as well as possible with their dementia illness in their own communities. In times of crisis, the service will support the rapid response team to help to maintain people in their own homes. They also arrange for people to be admitted to short stay settings where needed.

Many people with dementia are looked after on a day to day basis by a spouse or other family member. But caring relatives need a break from time to time and this is where the ‘sitting service’ can help. On an arranged day each week we will come and take over the role - allowing the family member time to themselves. Some of our customers may require live-in care, which is also available.

Bluebird Care Sheffield holds regular training updates for its care workers. This ensures that our staff understand the practical and emotional aspects of caring for people with dementia.  

Care visits are usually 30 minutes to an hour long. However, there is no upper time limit for our care visits. Indeed, many of our customers who have some form of dementia enjoy the support of one of our live-in carers to provide an additional level of reassurance.

We have worked with Bradford Council's Adult and Community Services Commissioning Team to develop and support the service user involvement group since 2008. The group has now held over 50 meetings. These are open to anyone who uses or has recently used a service commissioned by Adult and Community Services in the district and their carers or advocates.

This work provides a mix of consultation, information, training, mentoring and empowerment to a range of people who use services in the district. These include people with experience of mental health problems, homelessness, physical and learning disabilities and vulnerable older and young people. The aim is to influence and improve the services they use.

For information 01274 323513 For Gold line: 01535 292768

Gold Standards Framework is for people who have serious illness or may be in there last year of life. It is a way of working that helps professionals give better care. 

The services you use will be better co-ordinated. Your doctors and nurses will meet regularly to discuss your care. Your needs and wishes will be give greater priority and your care will be planned with you. You are more likely to get the kind of care you want in the place you want. 

With your permission you will be placed on the Gold Standard Framework and given a GSF patient card. The register tells everyone caring for you about your needs and wishes. This is called a care plan. 

You can also tell us about how you want to be cared for now and in the future. This is called Advanced Care Planning.

If you need to call a doctor when your surgery is closed, or if you are finding it hard to get advice you can call the Gold line which will be answered by a senior nurse. They will give you advice and support and contact other services that you might need e.g., a doctor, a community nurse, the hospice.

01904 555111/out of hours emergency line: 00845 034 9417

8:30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday

An assessment of your needs is a simple process that helps to gain understanding of what help and support you need on a day to day basis.

If you provide a substantial amount of unpaid care on a regular basis, you have the right to request a carer's assessment. The assessment is simply a conversation with you to find out about your caring situation, and what would help you to look after the person you are caring for.

This can be carried out at the same time as the assessment of the person you care for, or can be done separately and privately. It is free, confidential and carried out by City of York Council. If the person you are caring for receives any services they will have a financial assessment to see if they need to pay anything.

You can ask for the assessment yourself by contacting Social Services, or you can ask a professional such as your GP, to ask for a carer's assessment.

Access Team: 01274 435400

Extra Care Housing is housing designed with the needs of frailer people in mind and with varying levels of care and support available on site.

People who live in Extra Care Housing have their own self contained homes, their own front doors and a legal right to occupy the property. It is a popular choice among older people because it can sometimes provide an alternative to a care home. Extra Care Housing is also known as very sheltered housing, assisted living, or 'housing with care'. It comes in many forms, including blocks of flats, bungalow estates and retirement villages.

Additional resources and services can be included in Extra Care such as restaurant or dining room, health & fitness facilities, hobby rooms and even computer rooms. Domestic support and personal care are available, Properties can be rented, owned or part owned/part rented..

Extra Care Housing is designed to meet the care and support needs of people over 55 and younger people with disabilities who are becoming more frail and less able to do everything for themselves.

It can provide a real alternative to residential care for older people who value their independence, by providing self contained housing with support and care onsite.

There is a charge for Extra Care Housing, whether you will need to pay or contribute towards costs will depend on your personal circumstances.

Please follow the link to the council website to view the schemes, or for more information contact the Access Team.

local services telephone icon

01274 435400

Respite care is usually a short stay from one to seven days stay in a residential home. People who can access this service include people who have care needs or are carers.

You may need respite care because the person who normally cares for you is going on holiday or needs a break themselves. A short break gives you the option to have your meals cooked for you and there’s plenty of company to enjoy.

When you get in touch with us, a care manager will come and see you to talk about what you need. This is called an assessment.

If you are looking after someone else, the care manager will discuss how we can best help you too.

We can involve anyone else who needs to be involved, such as your doctor, district nurse, family, other relatives and neighbours etc. This will only be done if you agree.

There is a charge which will depend on your financial circumstances. This will normally be explained by your social worker. A financial assessment will also be carried out.

Grants cannot be paid retrospectively so a grant must be approved before work starts.

The aim of the scheme is to provide a free and confidential local link for the community of Ingleton to Age UK North Craven.  Village Agents are a first point of contact to signpost you to the community activities or other services available in Ingleton and beyond. 

The key aim of the service is to promote well-being and good health in older people and help them to avoid becoming lonely or isolated.  Where the local community tells us there are gaps that might provide social contact, we give guidance on what is happening already or support community groups to organise special activities of their own.

01904 692473

Most people will enter our service by referral from a health or social care professional or through our help line. Some will simply require a piece of information, which can be delivered by telephone, e mail or post. However, we find that for most the first contact is just the beginning.
If the need is more than just a simple piece of information we will allocate a support Advisor to the client and a face-to -face visit can be arranged, usually in the person’s home. At this point the support Advisor will assess the need, both immediate and future and we begin the navigation of the dementia journey with the person diagnosed and their family carers.
All our support services are overseen by an Admiral Nurse (a specialist dementia nurse with a CPN qualification and additional dementia experience). The Admiral Nurse is able to advise and support on the more complex cases and offer support to our dementia advisors and help line as and when required as well as holding her own case load.
Every person is different but most people benefit from some learning and from information, advice and signposting. However, we believe that the information needs to be delivered in a timely way i.e. by addressing each milestone of the illness as it arrives but with some preparation in order to prevent crisis.
We achieve this by registering the client on our database (with their permission and in line with data protection). We maintain an arms length communication, offering regular ongoing telephone contact. Meanwhile for those who wish we can introduce them to our peer support groups and social and well being activities as detailed below.
Following the initial assessment we aim to navigate the dementia journey, making sure that people can plan and that they receive the right help at the right time. An important part of this is the education programme that we detail below. This can be offered to all clients who enter our services at the point of diagnosis, so that they are able to make informed decisions while they still have the capacity to do so. In most cases, where appropriate information, education and support is given stress is reduced and a more ‘normal’ life can be resumed, at least until the next milestone of the illness.
Our support is maintained in some form until the person has reached the end of the illness and in some cases even beyond, by supporting the carer.

The critical points that we see people requiring extra support are usually:
• Concerns about memory problems – have I got dementia / how can I get a diagnosis for my partner / denial

• What a diagnosis means – a need for education, information and emotional support

• Loss of independence – Strain on relationships / safety / isolation

• Driving – a major issue for most and often complex because of some denial

• Financial support – particularly after loss of driving AA is a good thing to have in place in order to cover transport costs / Council Tax disregard and carer’s allowance to cover caring costs etc.

• Changing and sometimes challenging behaviours – We are able to provide some strategies but usually we encourage a return to the GP / consultant for a review, while we continue to support the carer.

• Concerns about eating and drinking – again strategies can be talked about or we suggest going back to GP for monitoring and review

• Incontinence – this can be a breaking point for a lot of people and we offer the emotional support as well as signposting. Also peer support at this point is often very supportive, a sharing of experience and strategies

• Carer stress / exhaustion – we can support someone to find day care or respite or refer them to our Befriending scheme (see below) but also we do often get involved in the gentle persuasion that this is a necessity in order to prevent a breakdown of the caring role. We refer to NYCC at this point where appropriate, often working in partnership.

• Going into long term care – we support at multi disciplinary meetings if requested, we advise on funding and offer emotional support

• End of life – we offer ongoing support to the carer when a person enters long term care.


In between these critical points we would encourage self help, made all the more possible once people have been in receipt of the information and guidance they need but also importantly that they know where to turn if things change and they need further support. Our aim is always to prevent crisis.

Dementia Forward: Education programmes for people with dementia and their carers

local services address icon

Dementia Forward, York Eco Business Centre, Amy Johnson Way, Clifton Moor, York. YO30 4AG

01904 692473

Education programmes for people with dementia and their carers. For some people recently diagnosed, information is empowering, and our team have a track record of running an education programme that supports people to deal with all the things they need to plan for and at the same time can give reassurance and encourage them to live life to the full. The programme is for 8 weeks, usually with 10-12 couples attending. The content of the 8 weeks course is:
• What your diagnosis means to you

• What each health and social care professional does

• The importance of future planning – wills, P.O.A., financial and legal planning e.g. tenants in common

• Advanced wishes

• Benefits and entitlements – e.g. carers allowance, attendance allowance, council tax disregard

• Information on other local organisations

• Support networks e.g. telling the family and friends, relationships and where to turn

• The importance of well being

• Remaining independent / Telecare
In addition there is an activity at every session as well as outside speakers and refreshments. There is a natural peer support formed at every session and this is encouraged so that at the end of the sessions it remains in place.
Not every person enjoys group activity and whilst it is more viable to deliver this in large groups, we are able to offer most of the content 1:1 during home visits.

local services address icon
local services telephone icon

01302 737631 or 01302 323444

The home alarm service and Telecare service helps elderly and vulnerable adults live safely in their own home.

All you need is a telephone socket that is able to make outgoing calls and a nearby electrical outlet on the same wall within two metres of each other.

The service operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The cost of the service is £3.20 per week or £41.60 per quarter. Customers aged 65 and over who get housing benefit or Council Tax Support for financial reasons will receive the service free of charge.

Home alarms:

All customers receive a home alarm and a pendant, which is connected via a phone line to the call centre. By pressing a button on your pendant, you will get through to the customer service advisers, who are trained to deal with emergencies quickly and efficiently.

Telecare service:

The system works exactly like the home alarm service, but with the added safeguard of additional sensors around your home, depending on your needs.

If one of the sensors is automatically activated or if you press your personal alarm trigger, the alarm connected to your phone will ring the call centre who will help you. In an emergency, or if they can not contact you, they will arrange for a designated family member, neighbour, the emergency services or mobile warden to visit you.

Some Telecare sensors can just raise an alarm in your home without calling the contact centre. This is useful if you have a carer living with you or if you are a carer looking after someone.

The system can adapted to support individuals in a range of different situations, such as:

  • bogus callers
  • carbon monoxide
  • falls
  • floods
  • leaving taps or gas on
  • medication reminders
  • smoke

You can download an application form here or request a form over the telephone.
