“It’s a constant battle to get any help for my mum even though she’s in her 80’s and has dementia!! I feel like I am always having to shout really loudly to get anywhere. I wonder, who will be shouting for me? or will I be the old lady dying alone in a hospital bed because no one cares?”
1 in 5 people over 50 in the UK have no children but what does this mean for organisations working with older people?
AWOC runs a workshop based on our research with people ageing without children that will help your organisation
- Understand the extent and nature of the issues facing people ageing without children
- Discuss the reasons, assumptions and myths about why people arrive at later life without children
- Consider what services your organisation has for people ageing without children and what new solutions could be developed
- Think about ways your organisation and services can be more Ageing without Children friendly.
