For over four decades Westfield Community Centre has been involved in providing a variety of services to the elderly. It has cared for thousands of elderly people during this time including a number of centenarians. Today the centre provides 5 days a week provision for disabled or socially isolated, economically deprived elderly people. The Westfield Community Development Association has provided this care by subsidizing:
- Hot nutritious lunches
- Transport to and from the centre in the centre’s wheel chair accessible buses
- Accommodation for befriending and social activities for the disabled elderly and those suffering or recovering from stroke.
- Respite care for family carers
- Advice and support.
We deliver these services by engaging and supporting a team of over 20 volunteer befrienders, drivers and escorts, many of whom are elderly/retired people .
- Age Concern Drop In and Lunch Club
- Stroke Club
