With the country’s population ageing at an unprecedented rate, demand for information relating to elderly care issues is at an all time high. This is certainly the case in Bramhall and surrounding areas where local Minister, Reverend Leslie Newton, decided to do something about it.
He decided to host an event, Connecting with Care, which would allow members of the local community to meet with people providing services to senior people, in order to learn more about help available in the area.
Attendees heard talks from at-home care company, Home Instead; Stockport Mind; Flag (For Local Advice and Guidance); AWD Chase De Vere; local solicitors, Gorvins; NHS Lifestyle Services; Self Help Services and Age UK.
The Reverend Leslie Newton commented, “The inaugural Connecting with Care event went really well and was attended by around 30 local people seeking help and advice. We are grateful to the providers of services who took the time to come along and we all found it extremely informative.”
Home Instead owner David Moore said, “Professionals from so many different sectors come into contact with the older generation who sometimes are uncertain about where to turn for information and advice on a wide range of issues.
“I think the forum was an excellent idea and I have spoken with Leslie about running some more in the future.”
There are plans for more Connecting with Care events in the Stockport area. To register your interest, please contact David Moore at Home Instead on: 0161 491 2925.
