Home Instead, Welwyn and Hatfield, is hosting an ‘Older People’s Information Event’, on the 5th October, from 1pm until 3pm, at The United Reform Church, Church Road, Welwyn Garden City. Admission is free and open to all members of the community who will be welcomed with a selection of tea, coffee and biscuits.
Celebrating National Older People’s Day, the information event will provide older people and their families with free advice and information about the services available to them in their local area. Exhibitors at the event will include: Hertfordshire LINk Local Involvement Network, Hertfordshire Hearing Advisory Service, Hertfordshire Society for the Blind and
Hertfordshire Action on Disability as well as there being representatives from Hertfordshire County Council’s Money Advice Unit.
“Events like these are so important because many older people and their families struggle to know where to turn to for support and advice, especially so when a crisis hits. We have a number of local organisations on hand to offer advice on an assortment of topics, including, how to remain healthy, active and most importantly, independent in later life. I hope that the information taken away will go some way to helping older people and their families, prepare and look forward to the future. Dependent on its success, we may hold similar events in the not so distant future.”
Home Instead specialises in providing older people with non-medical care, enabling them to remain in their own homes. Their award-winning service ranges from companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, post-discharge care, personal care, medication reminders, shopping and errands. Available from as little as 1 hour to 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
