Bid to help Maidstone people stay in their own homes for longer
SAGA Independent Living has launched a facility for Maidstone designed to assist people to live in their own homes for longer. 
The new service ranges from personal care services such as help with dressing, bathing or reading to people with poor eyesight, through to help with domestic services such as shopping, cleaning, preparation of meals.  
'Saga has unique experience and insight into the needs of people as they grow older and the standards of service they expect,' said Saga Services chief executive Roger Ramsden.

Pensioners go to bed early in carer mix-up
PENSIONERS receiving home care in Sunderland are having to go to bed early because carers repeatedly turn up at the wrong time, it has been claimed. 
Coun Denny Wilson told Caring UK that since the council outsourced their home care services to agencies, some elderly clients have complained that carers are turning up hours earlier than requested - forcing people to go to bed at a time that does not suit them. 
He said: 'The agency staff are often turning up early - sometimes over an hour early - and it's upsetting the people being cared for."
