ALONE is a national organisation that supports older people to age at home. Our services include: Support Work, Befriending, Housing with Support, and BConnect training & technology. Our volunteers and staff are dedicated to ensuring every older person has the supports they need to age at home. The ALONE Way is the guiding principles and core values that underpin everything we do: how we organise ourselves, how we behave, how we make decisions, how we engage with our stakeholders, and how we will deliver on our mission. The ALONE Way is: compassionate, honest, effective, and innovative. ALONE provide homes to older people who were homeless or at risk of homelessness. Each ALONE home is age-friendly, comfortable, and has its own front door – a true place to call home. Every ALONE tenant gets a lifetime tenancy. Staff and volunteers work with each tenant to link them with their community and ensure they receive any additional support they need. We currently have over 100 homes across the North and South of Dublin. ALONE Support Workers help older people who need extra support to age at home. We work with the older person to address their immediate situation and act as a main point of contact to link them in with services in the community. We maintain contact with the older person to ensure long-term solutions are achieved. ALONE’s Befriending service matches older people who are fee
