Local Care Company Support Health & Well-Being Fairs
Friday 11th October and Saturday 12th October Lisa Stirk and Kate Button from Home Instead were delighted to take The Independent Living Roadshow to two events run by local voluntary organisations.
Thirsk Community Care and The Clock organised an amazing event at Thirsk Town Hall which saw many local organisations coming together and sharing their knowledge and expertise in offering different elements of Ageing Well to the local community and promoting the new 'What's on for you' Thirsk and District Guide.
Many people walked through the doors interested in gathering further information that may assist them remaining safely in their home and within their local communities for as long as possible. Activities took place in the centre of the room such as curling, singing and arts and crafts.
On Saturday with a similar theme Nidderdale Plus Community Hub brought many local organisations together to showcase the support that is available to the rural communities in Nidderdale. Again, there was a great support and we were delighted to welcome so many people to the Home Instead Stand where we spoke about individuals personal circumstances and some of the challenges they face.
Lisa and Kate thoroughly enjoyed being a part of two great events and were pleased to take The Independent Living Roadshow to share literature from a number of partners who are apart of the Roadshow Team, such as Harrogate Borough Council, North Yorkshire Fire and Police, SOLLA (Financial Planning for later years), Rise Mobility for specialist equipment for in the home, LCF Barber Titley Law Firm, Parkinson's Harrogate Branch, Dementia Forward and The Alzheimer's Society.
Thank you to both organisations for the great organising and bringing all these amazing partners together in supporting the local communities and their families.
