Age Well in Breightmet

Age Well in Breightmet is a community group running activities for older people (over 55’s) based at St. James’ Church Parish Centre, Breightmet which started Sept 2018.
Our aim is to improve the quality of life for older people living in Breightmet, reduce isolation and loneliness, support older people to find ways of continuing to use their wealth of skills and experience gained over their lifetime, and to promote a positive narrative about age and ageing.
We run two activities which are open to anyone over 55 and people who have caring responsibilities for an older person.
Age Well Wednesdays (2 - 4pm) is a weekly session for socialising and organised activities with refreshments. Activities during the afternoon include quizzes; arts and crafts, knit and natter, jigsaws, games, and occasionally bingo. We have occasional visiting speakers talking about age/wellbeing related topics such as preventing falls, making wills and power of attorney and becoming a Dementia Friend. We knitted poppies for a Remembrance Day display and Christmas Angels to give out to people in the local community. At the moment we are knitting Forget-me-not brooches to give out for Dementia Awareness in May.
We also run an Afternoon Tea on the third Monday each month between 2.00pm - 4.00pm. This is an opportunity for people to come to meet new people or chat with friends over sandwiches, cakes and a drink.

Eden Care Project

We are a non-for-profit organisation. We aim to better the elderly care services and access to these services for BME groups. We believe and know that there exists an inequality in service provision for these groups; whether that be due to this group not understanding what is available, to not understanding who/where to seek help etc. Also we aim to (in the future) deliver care services that are designed and delivered with the cultural and social/health needs of the target population in mind; we aim to deliver responsive, adaptive care services ranging from home care/home help to day care and respite services, advocacy services, residential/nursing care provision etc.
