Many of the regular activities organised at Ewart House are open to other people living in Harrow. Most take place in the cafe, which is open to the public and has ample comfortable seating or in the adjacent health spa.
If you would like professional advice on benefits, Age UK is running popular one to one help sessions once a month at Ewart House. Age UK’s adviser can explain what help you are entitled to and can help you make a claim, including filling out forms. You will need to book an appointment. Call ✆ 020 8861 7980 and be sure to mention Ewart House.
Toe nail care: Age UK is now offering a low cost foot care service, Fitter Feet, from the Ewart House health spa. Fitter Feet is for anyone in the borough aged 55 or over who has trouble cutting their own toe nails. We regret that we cannot, for health reasons, help if you have diabetes, leg or foot ulcers, poor circulation, take any kind of steroid or are on a blood-thinning medication like Warfarin.
Manicures: That’s the feet taken care of but you can also get your hands pampered at Thursday afternoon sessions run by our in-house team: Ruby, Sylvia and Cathy. If they’re busy when you arrive, just make yourself comfortable in the café/lounge area to wait your turn.
Ewart House has a dedicated Bingo crew, who turn up come rain or shine every Wednesday from 3pm to 5pm.
Newcomers are welcome to join these lively sessions.
If you want to check that a game is scheduled, just call ✆ 020 8427 1341.
