Senior’s Information Day Success
The inaugural ‘Windsor Senior’s Information Day’ held at the All Saints Church in Dedworth last week was a resounding success with the local elderly community. The event brought together a host of local companies and organisations to provide free advice and information to older people and their families across the area.
The event played host to around 70 people and organisers Home Instead Senior Care were delighted to welcome the Deputy Mayor, Colin Raynor who visited each stand and was full of praise for the Information Day.
The event’s organisers Home Instead Senior Care provide at home care for older people and are therefore aware that older people do not always know what services are available to them.
Owner of Home Instead in Windsor and Runnymede, Anitra Camargo commented, “The event was a great success. Events like these are so important because many elderly people and their families struggle to know where to turn to for support and advice and we wanted to help provide some help and some answers.”
She continues: “We would like to say a big thank you to everybody who came along to visit us and also to all of our exhibitors. A special thanks goes to Deputy Mayor Colin Raynor who was extremely kind to come along and said he was thrilled to see so many local people coming together to support the older generation.”
Companies and organisations present included: Age UK Windsor, Woman’s Royal Voluntary Services, Outreach Carers Support, People to Places, Alzheimer’s Dementia Support, Crossroads, Co-op Funeral Care, Parkinson’s UK, Older Peoples Advisory Forum, Fire Brigade, Community Safety/Services, Thames Valley Police, Radian and SenD Technology.
