Details about the Care Provider :
This service aims to provide advocacy for older people aged 65 and over who have a mental health condition.

This may be some form of dementia or may be a mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, psychosis or neurosis. It is also expected that the older person would have no effective friends or relatives to support them and are unable to speak up for themselves.

The Advocate (either a volunteer or paid advocate) will work alongside the older person providing them with information, support and representation on specific issues and concerns that are affecting their lives. The aim of this service is to empower and enable the older person at vulnerable times in their lives and to promote their independence. Consequently we do not tend to provide long-term advocacy relationships.

Referrals will be considered for older people living in the community, in care homes or in hospital, who live in the Cheshire area and who it is believed will benefit from the service.
