The Association also has a hospital and home visiting team. Other volunteers visit people in Care Homes when necessary. As part of our work we have repatriated some individuals to the UK, where there are more caring facilities and access to benefits unavailable in Spain. Some of our volunteers have had careers in nursing, education, psychology and other caring professions and are accustomed to listening in a sympathetic and kind manner. We work closely with the British Consulate, Royal British Legion, and branches of the International Lions.
At the present time we have Coffee Mornings in four locations on the Costa del Sol where people can chat, share experiences and get information about many aspects of living in Spain. Our volunteers can give confidential help and guidance about the many different problems affecting older people.

We also operate a Charity Shop that is instrumental in helping us meet the expenses required to operate and assist our clients. The ACA Charity Shop offers a wide range of items in excellent condition in a very organized and cheery setting. There is everything from household items, fashion and accessories to golf clubs or children’s toys. Many items have never been used or are in mint condition. Next door we have opened a second hand book shop which has a wide range of titles to suit all tastes - well worth a visit. The proceeds from the shop sales go to support the work of Age Care Association in providing services to the English speaking elderly in the community.
