The Age Pages

Getting older can mean that we have developing health issues and we might need to adjust our life style. One significant issue that can arise is:

  • I/my partner/relative has an illness/disability/mental health problem which is getting worse and we need help

Your first step would be to seek advice from Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust

Other issues that come up may include:

  • I am finding it hard to look after my partner/relative/manage at home
  • I need help from health professionals and need to know where they are in this locality
  • I want to understand more about a specific condition
  • I'd like to be able to talk to others with or with relatives with the same condition
