HSE Launch Age Friendly Guide for Cork City and County



A Directory of supports and services for older people in Cork City and County This publication has been produced by the HSE Community Work Department Cork to address the need for more information on services and supports for older people across Cork City and County in one easy to use booklet.

The directory intends to: • publicise the ever-increasing services and activities for older people in our community. • increase awareness in the local community of the health services that are available to you locally and regionally. • support professionals working in Cork City and County, who may be in a position to recommend, or refer to, the services listed. • serve as a useful resource for the general public including newcomers who are relocating to Cork City and County areas. We have made every effort through a wide ranging consultation to ensure that the information is both accurate and appropriate.
