Age Space

Age Space supports anyone worried about or caring for an elderly parent or relative with practical advice and guidance, and at its heart is a friendly online conversation space: there are blogs and personal experiences, expert advice and support. www.agespace.org focuses on what matters most to each of us supporting our elderly parents. Care in older age doesn’t need to be a terrifying and lonely prospect for either those being cared for, or those faced with making decisions about care.

Age Space was founded in 2015 by Annabel James and Ruth Darrah. We both have elderly relatives and have had to help them make decisions about care over the past 5 years. It has been a lonely, difficult journey and we have found it hard to navigate the care system, and find the answers to our many, sometimes embarrassing, questions. Age Space is the website we wish we had been able to turn to during this time.
