Senior Support

Services and supports for older people

Our senior support team provide a range of one-to-one supports for older people who live alone, and as well as working with community groups to meet the needs of older people in their communities.
Our mission is to support healthy, independent ageing at Home.

Our four main support services

Community Catering Meals on Wheels

Preparing and delivering a range of nutritionally balanced meals for older people. The service is flexible, affordable and can meet the nutritional needs of older people who have specific medically related dietary requirements.

Sonas Day Centre

A drop in centre in the heart of Mervue where older residents in the area can drop in for a chat, meet neighbours, take part in health-promoting activities, day trips and access information & support in relation to health, welfare & housing services.

Our Lunch Clubs

Making lunch a social event where older people in the community come for a healthy meal, social interaction and activities. We have lunch clubs across Galway city and parts of the county.

Community Support

Our Community Support Workers work directly with older people who live alone to provide practical and social support and help develop community resources.

My children thought it was a great idea. They like the fact that I get my meals delivered to the door; it would be difficult to organise it any other way. It’s important to have a decent meal sometime in the day.
