Social support

ECHO understands that social engagement is important to health and happiness in older age.

We help clients continue to engage with their local community through regular social outings: everything from coffee at local cafes to visits to museums, markets, nursaries and other places of interest.

We post out a social outings calendar each month, and clients call and book for the outings of their choice.

Every Monday and Friday we provide buses to local shopping centres so clients can pick up groceries and other shopping.

We also provide individual social support with a support worker. This can include shopping, visiting a loved one, going to the hairdresser, taking a walk in the park with your dog, going to the library or just heading out for a coffee.

What people say about ECHO

‘We would like to thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts for caring for our mother. It brings comfort to know that every Wednesday mum would have a friendly visit from your support worker.’
