2020 was a turbulent year for Action for Elders with the Covid-19 outbreak bringing unprecedented challenges to the organisation. Older people were and still are some of the most vulnerable and hardest affected by the restrictions that followed.
For Action for Elders, this meant quickly and effectively adapting our programmes to support our participants. These included a big shift to online support, such as developing web-based exercise and social classes, improving our social media and helping older people to stay in touch with the world with technical support.
The Balanced Lives at Home programmes have allowed us to expand our services to a larger group of people and made us a more resilient organisation.
