The elderly need support in maintaining as active and independent lifestyle while avoiding  isolation. The Jersey Care Model, if developed more transparently and with wider stakeholder  involvement, could produce positive outcomes in supporting care in the home and within the  community, along with wellbeing checks. However, health needs to remain affordable for the  elderly, bearing in mind that pensioner poverty is relatively high in Jersey compared to the UK.  

Measures described in this manifesto to improve health delivery, the economy and housing  should benefit Islanders of all ages. 

I would seek more tax deductions for personal pension provision and a dialogue within the  Parish about elderly access to alternative free or subsidised transport for those unable to use  buses or who need assistance with deliveries.
