Information day to provide invaluable resource for the elderly

Home Instead in Southport is sounding a clarion call to community members to educate themselves on age awareness issues by inviting them to attend an Older Persons’ Information Day on the 21st May running from 10am to 2pm. 

The Information Day entitled Home Sweet Home will provide an opportunity for elderly people and families who are looking for support for older loved ones, to speak to knowledgeable experts and learn more about relevant services available in the area.

The event will play host to representatives from the following organisations: Age Concern, Alzheimer’s Society, Sefton Carers Centre, Morecroft Solicitors, Sefton Pensioners Advocacy Centre, Freshfield Financial Services, Sefton Cancer Support Group, Stroke Association, Anchor Housing, Numark Pharmacy, Southport Macular Disease Support Group and of course the organiser, Home Instead.

Home Instead owners Irene Hough and Anthea Pilkington commented, “We are confident that the Older Persons’ Information Day will provide people in our community with the opportunity to raise any issues or concerns with knowledgeable and enthusiastic professionals. Getting older is not always easy, but by bringing together experts on a whole host of relevant issues, we hope to provide help and support to anyone in need.”
There will also be an opportunity to sample various alternative therapies on the day as well as a free blood pressure check.

The Older Persons’ Information Day will take place at Lord Street West United Reformed Church, Duke Street. Southport, PR8 2BJ.   Entry is free and refreshments will be available.
