02 December 2015, Home Instead Greenwich & Bexley attended Healthcare Event at Charlton House in Charlton organised by NHS Oxleas. The event was mostly attended by Oxleas members, service users and their carers.
Home Instead, Greenwich & Bexley stand was visited by over 60 people and received over dozen enquires for Care and job as a CAREGiver. Fatta Thapa, the Director of Home Instead Greenwich & Bexley found the event to be very useful as he had an opportunity to meet so many healthcare service providers under one roof. The exhibitors included from home care agencies to primary care providers. The organisers and visitors thanked Home Instead for taking the time to get involved in the event. Everyone who visited to our stand appreciated the fact that Home Instead is a very person-centred home care provider and continuity of care is something we do not compromise on. Home Instead provides anything from an hour to 24 hours care for older people at their own home so that they can continue living in their own home for as long as possible. Fatta explained to the visitors how Home Instead profile match client with CAREGiver on the basis of their interest and personality.
Collaborative working is at the very heart of what we at Home Instead. Matthew Henderson from The Greenwich Memory Service said - he is looking forward to working with Home Instead. The Community Mental Health Team at Oxleas also expressed their willingness to work with Home Instead so that ultimately the clients we support will receive high-quality of care at home.
The key priority of the event was - supporting people’s physical and mental wellbeing and the focused being on long-term conditions with the aim of giving visitors information and advice on how best to self-manage them. The event aim echoed with Home Instead principle of supporting people to be independent through our Home Help and Companionship Services; rather than doing work for older people our CAREGivers empower them to be independent so that they can continue living in their homes.
It was a well-attended evet with over 200 people walking through the door.
