Vision – We exist to promote the welfare
of the older residents in the Borough of Maidstone.
We believe that older people are entitled to
the help that they need to improve their own sense of well-being,
to promote independence and to have control of their own lives;
that ‘Ageist’ or negative attitudes can lead to low
expectations by older people or carers about what can be achieved;
That older people should remain free to choose the services they
require; In working with partners to achieve our vision.
Our objectives are: to provide a wide variety
of services aimed at improving the quality of life for elderly
people at a price they can afford; To work in partnership with
others to this end and seek to educate and influence key decision
makers on issues relating to older people; to support older people
in their homes to promote their independence and offer temporary
access to services where appropriate; to provide companionship for
our clients at our day centres which offer a range of specialised
services. When clients need more
specialist care than we can provide, we refer them onto other
agencies working to secure the support they need.
