What We Do
Services For Older Persons
Services for Older Persons seek to promote the well-being and mutual support of elderly people by helping them to positively use and enjoy their leisure time, build social networks and participate in community activities. The Service has projects based Southill, Our Lady of Lourdes, Ballynanty and in St Mary’s Parish, also works with other groups throughout Limerick and provides classes at the LSSC Centre.
There is an extensive programme of visitations to older persons in their home, in hospitals and in other care settings. Service users are linked to other agencies as needs arise and counselling is offered through the LSSC Counselling Service. The Service also offers a range of practical information and advice, including assistance with access to services, form filling, and general administration that has challenged many older persons in recent times due to computerisation.
