Have you heard of the Ageing Well Card?

We’re supporting the development of age-friendly communities by raising awareness of the Ageing Well Card scheme for our customers and others in our communities.

As an organisation working across housing, care and support, we help people from all backgrounds and ages including older people. We want to support older people to maintain their independence and continue doing the things that matter to them.

Run by the Older People’s Commissioner, the Ageing Well Card initiative is recognised across Wales. The free set of cards include a number of simple messages which are provided in a handy travel-card wallet. Here’s some examples of what the messages say:

  • Please be patient – I have difficulty in speaking
  • Do you have a seat for customers? I need to rest
  • Please can you direct me to the nearest toilet?

There are also blank cards so people or their family members can write a message most suited to them and their needs.

If you think this scheme could help someone you know, visit Ageing Well in Wales for more information.

Order a set of cards by contacting Ageing Well on 02920 445 030 or email ageingwell@olderpeoplewales.com.
