Mature Adult (65+)


Older people are at risk of becoming isolated and excluded as a result of being less mobile and active and it is important that this doesn’t happen. Staying in touch with your local community is a very important part of healthy and active ageing.

Planning for the future is important in case you or a family member lose the ability to make independent decisions. Many people feel comfort in knowing their needs and wishes have been recorded if their situation or support needs change.

You may be considering retiring from work, wondering what opportunities are available to you.

DSA has:

  • Experience in supporting people to self-direct their packages
  • Trained staff who have experience
  • Modern, bright and engaging facilities
  • Modern and up to date workplaces
  • Technology in place such as video conferencing that means we can provide support to people who are geographically isolated, time poor or live in remote areas.

The Planning for the Future booklet, from FaHCSIA, produced in 2007, is a great guide for parents supporting a family member, and may be a useful link.
