The last Connecting with Care event took place in Ashton on Mersey and 60 people attended, this was our 5th Connecting with Care, Julie Davis from Washway Road Medical Centre commented “Thanks Alan. I was impressed with Tuesday night's event; it really got me thinking...it struck me that there's SO MUCH going on out there that most of us (or maybe just me) haven't a clue of the range and breadth of help and activities available.”
The events are focussed on the topic of the 'care & wellbeing of senior people' & attendees from the following sectors are invited - medical/NHS, faith, housing, voluntary, council, retail, commercial and residence from the local area. The format encourages attendees to raise awareness of their own services amongst other attendees as well as enjoying some interesting talks. Over the first 5 events we have had 185 attendees.
The next Connecting with Care takes place in Hale on 15th Nov from 17:45, (for details see web link below)
We are very pleased that we have The Federation of Jewish Services, Spire Healthcare & The Parkinson's Society presenting. We will also be announcing Home Instead's new national initiative with Age UK regarding 'Falls Prevention'.
