Phil Eckersley, owner of the Wigan based at home care company, Home Instead Senior Care, has been supporting the Wigan & Leigh Carers’ Centre as it opened its doors last week (Friday 3rd December).
The new Wigan & Leigh Carers’ Centre is a resource for voluntary carers of all ages from across the borough, where they can find all the support, information and training they may need. Members of the community were welcomed to the centre to find out more about their services.
As well as Home Instead Senior Care other local companies such as NHS Anti Smoking support and Active Living Falls Prevention Service were on hand to provide information.
There were a number of guest presenters who spoke on various subjects. Anthony Mohammed from Adult Social Services and Malcolm Carney, Chair of the board of Trustees at the Wigan & Leigh Carers’ centre, both presented during the day. Guests also enjoyed a performance by Rose Bridge High School choir. Commenting, Phil said “It was a great event as many people in the community are unaware of what help is out there and it was a great turn out, despite the weather.”
