‘LATER LIFE REALLY MATTERS’

As we get older, we may want or need help or advice that is specific to later life. For the senior citizen, their family or anybody who just wants to plan for their future, the amount of information which needs to be absorbed can be overwhelming.

Finding the right people to give you all the information you need can be difficult. Locating a professional who is knowledgeable in their field and can be trusted, often mean’s some timely research that can impact on our daily life.

All these worries can soon be overcome with a unique event that is coming to Hertfordshire very soon.

Home Instead Senior Care, East Herts, Christy Care and the Later Life Matters organization are co-hosting and meticulously planning the Later Life Hertfordshire event scheduled for Tuesday 29th September 2015, at the Hertford Theatre.

David Bassett, Director of Home Instead Senior Care says “By bringing together some major providers on one site, we can aim to answer all those questions and more, providing practical guidance and advice we have approached a healthy mixture of charities and businesses that work in Hertfordshire and having worked with each other at some point, means we are confident and happy to be associated with each other. Everybody involved has the expertise or something to offer and I hope that people will take advantage of this free event and come along”.

Jo Bastick, community service representative for Home Instead Senior care has also been responsible for securing some of the very best services and well respected organisations.

Jo comments “it’s been months in the planning , co-ordinating with Christie Care and Later Life Matters, to ensure there is something available for everybody. I have learnt a lot about the things that matter, and feel confident that the invaluable advice offered will give people the freedom of choice, in a sometimes maze of confusion. I would really urge adults of any age to come along. Home Instead are passionate about changing the face of ageing and our aim is for you to look forward towards the future with confidence and be ready to adapt to circumstances that may occur. We want you to celebrate your future rather than see it as a burden on society and we believe fair access to a dignified high quality care experience is something everyone should be entitled to”.
