Carers First! at Barton Grange

On October 25th we returned to Barton Grange to hold our CARERS FIRST! event in conjunction with our colleagues at Home Instead Senior Care, Preston and South Ribble.

The day was aimed at people supporting loved ones at home, and provided the opportunity to speak to a wide range of local services providing FREE information, advice and practical ideas to help support loved ones at home.

It was a super day and a great opportunity to meet up with like minded people and organisations all with one aim in mind: to enable and support people to continue to live well in their own homes.

MASSIVE THANKS to all of the organisations who took part: ABL, NCompass, Lancashire Trading Standards, Parkinson’s UK, The British Legion, Lancashire Fire and Rescue, Care and Repair, Age Concern and last but not least our lovely CAREGiver Christine who provided additional support on the day.

Special thanks go to Sue and Mehmet from HISC Preston for another successful collaboration and especially to Sue for all her efforts in making the day such a success.

Already looking forward to our next visit in 2018........ Watch this space!
