Older People's Information Day

Yesterday we hosted our first ever Older People’s Information Day in Wetherby. This provided a great opportunity for the local businesses and charities to come together and showcase the services available for older people in Wetherby and the surrounding area. Watch our video above to see what happened during the day!

With people from across the area visiting our information day, talking to the businesses exhibiting to discover the services available to them and catching up with friends or familiar faces over tea and coffee, it was a great event! We had over 15 different local and national companies providing information across a range of services from diabetes and cancer awareness to West Yorkshire Trading Standards warning about the risk of elderly scamming, Wetherby Osteopaths, NatWest Bank and Over the Rainbow Care providing dementia care and support in the community.

Home Instead hosted the event for others to join and discussed how they can help people to remain independent in their own home for longer and how people can join our team of supportive and engaging CAREGivers.

With such a good reception from our local community and the attendees who helped us to put on this event, we’re sure this won’t be our last one! Keep an eye out on here or on our Facebook page (@HISCwetherby) for our next event.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the event, whether this was information for us to display or attending on behalf on your business or charity.
