At Home Instead, we want to help people live well in the community as best they can. Although we offer various care services to ensure older people can remain living in the comfort of their own home, there are other things that will benefit the community which we cannot offer.

This is what lead to organising the Community Wellbeing Information Day.

Our Community Wellbeing Information Day will have representative from the public sector, private sector, third sector, local organisations, support groups and social clubs.

Our Community Relations Manager, Lucie Williams, said;

‘There are a number of brilliant services out there that many people just don’t know about. Through my role at Home Instead, I have come to learn out about these services on offer and feel it’s only right to spread the word.’

The event is completely free for anyone to attend, perfect for getting advice and information on the following and more;

  • Carer advice and support
  • Dementia Support
  • Trading Standards related concerns
  • Fraud Prevention
  • Local activities to suit all ages and abilities
  • Employment and volunteering opportunities
  • Home care services
  • Free services
  • Living Aids
  • Joining local social clubs
  • Debt and Personal Finance Advice
  • Enrolling on courses and learning new skills
  • Local housing
  • Mental Health Advice and Support

At the event, we have Amplifon who are offering free hearing aid checks and you’ll have the opportunity to find out your blood type thanks to the Welsh Blood Service.

Be sure to visit Home Instead’s stand to find out all about our services and how to progress in a career in care.

Dementia Friendly Abergele will be present to discuss the changes the local community is going through to become more dementia inclusive.

Betsi Cadwaladr and the Community Health Council will have representatives there to listen to any issues you may have with your local health service. North Wales Police will be there to address any other problems you may have in the community.

For those who looking to making friends whilst getting active, we have a number of local sports groups joining us. Information will be available on how to get involved in football, cricket, rugby, walking or even the local gym.

The Conwy Wellbeing Team have various free events going on throughout the county for the local people to enjoy, so please be sure to stop by their stand. Dewis will also be able to provide information on activities that are running in the local area.

Those with a little extra time on their hands, perhaps being recently retired, may be interested in the volunteering opportunities with Reading Friends, CVSC or DVSC.

The Single Point of Access (SPoA) team assist with directing you to the relevant service or contact to suit your situation, which is perfect if you’re feeling a little lost or aren’t quite sure where to start.
