Welcome to Calderdale Forum 50 Plus

We aim to support and represent people aged 50 and over in Calderdale and to promote a collective voice on issues that matter to them.


Choosing care

For many people over the age of 50, the need to reach decisions on care for elderly family members will be one of the key life stages you have to face, when your loved ones are no longer capable of expressing their needs and wants.  Our special guide to care takes you through the steps and helps you make the right choices.
