Local company, Home Instead, who support older people living in their own homes, recently got involved in the ‘Health and Wellbeing Fair’ held at Boroughbridge Library.

The aim of the event was to publicise and promote organisations whose activities contribute to the health, safety and wellbeing of residents in the Boroughbridge area, especially those over fifty-five.

Home Instead was joined by other local organisations including Carers’ Resource and Age UK. There was a host of other organisations and groups who provide interests and leisure pursuits in the local area.

 Home Instead provide their services in and around the town of Boroughbridge and were at the event with lots of information and advice, including information on their new campaign to keep older people safe from scams and fraud. The Home Instead ‘Senior Fraud Protection’ campaign is available not only to their own clients and CAREGivers, but also to members of the local community.

 Sheena Van Parys from Home Instead commented; ‘The ‘Health and Wellbeing Fair’ was a great opportunity to tell people about our service and what we can offer to the local community. As well as supporting seniors in their own home with professional, highly trained and well matched CAREGivers who are not rushed and take their time to deliver a good quality service, we also offer free workshops in the community on 'Understanding Dementia' and now our new campaign 'Senior Fraud Protection.’
