Elderly Care Information Stand at Harrogate District Hospital

The team from Carefound Home Care held an elderly care information stand at Harrogate District Hospital today.

As the issue of an aging population in North Yorkshire becomes ever more apparent it is vital that elderly people and their families are made aware of their options with regards to care and support. Key questions always include: What is available? How does it work? What does it cost? How will I pay for it?

In order to ensure that this information is more widely available Carefound Home Care regularly holds information stands to engage with people in the local community in Harrogate, Ripon, Wetherby and North Leeds.

Carol Giblin, Community and HR Coordinator at Carefound Home Care, managed the recent stand at Harrogate District Hospital and said: “It was a busy day speaking to families and health professionals about elderly care options and in particular the hourly home care and live-in care service we provide in North Yorkshire. We also had various queries regarding paying for care and were able to provide further information on this through our relationship with Symponia, a professional body representing a range of appropriately trained, qualified, local organisations (financial and legal) who can help with the financing of care fees. As ever, it was also great to catch-up with staff at the hospital.”
