The vision of Action for Elders is a society where all older people have the choice, support and empowerment to live healthy, active, and fulfilling lives.
We deliver our vision through an innovative, evidenced-based model of wellbeing support for older people: Balanced Lives, designed to improve three aspects of wellbeing:
Delivered through weekly classes in communities and care homes within England and Wales, Balanced Lives combines physical movement, caring conversations, information sharing and socialising.
Iris, 82, a member of one of our Balanced Lives groups, says: “Before I came to the group, I lived in a flat facing a brick wall and the only person I saw was the postman. I couldn’t move my shoulder and was becoming housebound. Since joining Balanced Lives, I’ve moved to an independent living scheme, made new friends, and am in far less physical pain – and now I do a different activity every day. I feel like life has meaning again.”
Legacies help us to deliver more wellbeing support and make the later years the best years.
