Independent Living

There will be a drop-in event on Tuesday 28 February at the Digital Media Centre for you to find out about ways we can support safe and independent living.

The event runs between 1pm and 7pm.  It is free and open to all.  

Pop in and visit a range of stalls.  You can find out how others have used alarms and other devices to help them be safe and independent.

From 3pm to 4pm there will be a training session for professionals involved in delivering health and social care.

The event will be particularly useful for:

  • family/carers
  • people working in the local authority
  • people delivering health or social care
  • emergency services
  • 3rd sector organisations
  • care home and private care staff
  • social and healthcare commissioners

We look forward to sharing information with as many of you as possible.
