Age Connects:


Information & Advice


Our Information & Advice Service is available to people aged 50+ in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Merthyr Tydfil and Bridgend by telephone, plus a face to face drop in and appointment service at our Pontypridd office


Community Outreach Services


Our Community Outreach Team supports older people whose physical condition or functional mental health has deteriorated following a fall or bereavement or major life changing event resulting in isolation.  We help them cope with their condition at home and reduce the risk of them being admitted, often unnecessarily, to hospital or prematurely entering residential care.

Our Hospital Discharge Service can offer a life-line to people who need that extra bit of support and encouragement following a hospital stay.  For many older people, bereavement or illness, even a fall, can result in depression, a loss of confidence and independence.


Independent Advocacy Service


If you feel that your rights and wishes are not being listened to or if you are concerned that an older person is being financially, physically, psychologically or sexually abused please get in touch, we can help make it stop.  If you are concerned that an older person is being neglected or exploited please get in touch, we can help make it stop.

Thank you for joining hands with MC to help stamp out poverty and social exclusion in South Wales.


Hospital to Home Services


Our Hospital Discharge Service provides 6-8 weeks support to people aged 50+ who have recently been discharged from hospital. This service is available to people living in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Merthyr Tydfil and Bridgend areas.

Many older people live alone or with an elderly partner or relative. After a stay in hospital the transition from hospital ward to home environment can be traumatic. Additional support may be needed during this period of readjustment. Our hospital discharge service complements the services provided by other agencies and is able to liaise on behalf of the service user with other service providers.


Nail Cutting Service


Our Nail Cutting Service is a revelation for hundreds of older people each year. For many older people, arthritic joints and tough overgrown toenails make wearing shoes and walking comfortably almost impossible


This is not a free service. We currently charge £13 for toenails at a clinic or £20, plus mileage from the nearest clinic, for a home visit
