Home Instead Create Independent Living Roadshow
Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk were delighted to receive such a positive response when they contacted outside voluntary organisations about an idea they had.
Lisa Stirk Community Co-Ordinator felt that it would be an great idea to create a Roadshow which offered senior members of our community a 'One Stop Shop' where they could access information regarding all aspects of living independently in their own home and more importantly, safely.
Lisa contacted Dementia Forward, North Yorkshire Police, Fire Service, Harrogate Borough Council, Rise Mobility and Cardale Financial Planning who all said 'Yes' they would welcome the opportunity in working together in delivering the 'Roadshow'
We all sat around a table early on in 2019 and shared ideas and suggestions on where we felt would be an ideal place to platform the Roadshow. We came up with a few places that we felt would be an ideal opportunity to share our information with as many people as possible. That is when 'Independent Living Roadshow for later years' was born.
To date we have run the Roadshow at Morrison's in Ripon, Asda in central Harrogate and on Friday the 7th June we are at Sainsburys on the Wetherby Road in Harrogate.
Lisa would like to thank all of the organisations that have come together in delivering the Roadshow and she is delighted with the positive responses they are receiving by the general public.
