Help improve services for older people

In the Winter 2018 issue of TGHC news we reported that we were revising the ways in which customers can get involved to shape our services.

We are pleased to report that many new people got in touch and registered their interest.

In particular, the Older Persons’ Service Improvement Group has seen a rise in membership numbers.

At their meeting in May, members shared priorities for older people in Gateshead, talking about what they love about their home and how we can make their home even better.

Michelle Muldoon-Smith, Older Persons Housing Manager, said, “Our new group had some fantastic suggestions including ideas around volunteering and open days in communal lounges.

“We’re always keen for new members so it was great to meet more people who are keen to help.”

Our group is interested in a range of topics to improve services for older people, including access to digital services and promoting activities for residents.
