An outreach confidential advice and support service for older residents, their families and people who reside in the village but have elderly parents living elsewhere.

The service is delivered by a trusted, experienced highly qualified professional, Debra Dulake. Debra has the full support of our GP Practice, RBWM/Optalis and is funded by the Old Windsor Parish Council and Optalis.

Debra’s role is to be an approachable and easily contactable listening ear. Someone you can trust to give knowledgeable and timely guidance on a range of issues that can affect the quality of life of our older residents. It is easy to be overwhelmed by a problem and not be sure which support is required, how to find that support and how to approach matters.

Some of the areas of concern that Debra offers advice and guidance about include:

Isolation and loneliness, packages of care to meet care needs, long term care placements, carer role, housing issues, family relationships, safety concerns, managing safely within your home, Assistive Technology and equipment, bereavement, Lasting Power of Attorney, wills, capacity issues, dementia, accessing information about illnesses and information about statutory and voluntary organisations.

If you think you or someone close to you could benefit from Debra’s advice and support please contact her on 07919175807 or by email at cas@owpc.co.uk
