First 'Key to Care' event in Harrogate with Dementia Forward

Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon & Thirsk, has launched free ‘Key to Care’ sessions to provide advice and support to the local community on a range of topics relating to home care, ageing well and common issues facing older people.

With the uncertainty and fear of the future being a significant challenge for many, Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon & Thirsk are keen to provide families in the local community with a hub of information to start the conversation around support and ‘what’s next’ for an ageing parent or family member.

The first session focused on dementia and included a talk by Emma Hawkins, a dementia support advisor from local charity, Dementia Forward. Attendees had the chance to learn more about the diagnosis stage, where to get support and how to live well with dementia.

The next session will explore Parkinson’s, enabling people in the community to learn more about the symptoms, understand how they can help, and access support available.

Sheena Van Parys, Director of Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon & Thirsk said: “As a local home care company providing support to individuals in our community, our sessions are the perfect hub to find out more on a range of topics that will help people remain safe and happy at home.”

Sheena continued: “The sessions are free to attend and everyone in the community is welcome to come along and ask any questions in a relaxed environment, we are hoping for a really enjoyable afternoon!”

The next session will take place on Thursday 19th October 2023 from 12 noon until 2pm at Talisman House, 13 North Park Road, Harrogate, HG1 5PD. For more information, please call 01423 774490 or email [email protected]
