AGE Space ­— a one-stop online resource and guide ­— has launched a new online hub for Isle of Wight families concerned about their elderly relatives during the Covid-19 self-isolation period.

Age Space is designed to enable families to make the best decisions, helping them navigate the complicated world of elderly care.

Users will find guidance on everything from how to make living at home easier to recognising extra care is needed and finding the best local resources, charities and organisations to help.

The site is broken down into seven easy-to-navigate sections ­— care, dementia, enjoying life, health and wellbeing, legal, money and finance and end of life.

The hub has a dedicated coronavirus page, directing people to the key support organisations on the Island, and a free downloadable guide packed with practical help specific to the elderly and their families.

There is also Facebook group, Supporting Elderly Relatives at Risk of Coronavirus, for daily advice and peer to peer support.

“Since the government advised anyone over the age of 70 to self-isolate, we have been inundated with questions from people worried about their elderly family members," said founder Annabel James.

"We hope this succinct guide offers families some practical help and advice during a period of information overload.”
