Home Instead were invited to attend a conference at the Women’s institute in Leyland. This meeting calls upon the H M Government to remove the distinction between nursing care and personal care in the assessment in the needs of the individual in order to advance health and wellbeing. Home Instead Southport director; Irene Hough and National office’s Michelle Begley, were in attendance to deliver a presentation on the resolution of failing to care – assessment of need in long term care.

The WI celebrate their centenary this year with their main conference taking place at the Albert Hall. The WI put forward various resolutions to be voted upon and we at Home Instead were very privileged to be asked to speak at the regional conference of the WI at Leyland.   In attendance was a representative from each chapter who would relay the information we presented to them back to their group members. Around 45 members of the WI were in attendance and our presentation was well received and we were made very welcome.   We are hopeful that this resolution will be passed this year. 

We would like to thank the WI for including us in their conference and being given such an opportunity to speak to members about some of our own resolutions. Home Instead always want to make a difference in the community and on a larger scale, we're glad to do what we can at all times of the year.
