Local Link To Adapt Service To Help Elderly In Rural Communities

They currently operate over services.

A midlands bus service is adapting in an effort to help the elderly.

Local Link in Westmeath usually brings older members of the community in rural areas to the shops, but now they've started bringing their shopping to them. 

It's an initiative which it's hoped will help people to self isolate without feeling detached from the community.

They currently operate over 100 services across Westmeath and Roscommon.
