Elderly care information stands held at local hospitals and Morrisons stores in Harrogate, Ripon and Wetherby have been a resounding success with elderly people and their families. People were able to learn more about support available to them in the community, including where more complex conditions such as dementia are involved.

The information stands were organised by Carefound Home Care, a local provider of specialist home care and dementia care services to elderly people who are on a push to ensure that individuals and families are more aware of what services are available to help them in the Harrogate, Ripon and Wetherby area. This may include hourly care, live in care or specialist dementia care offered by Carefound Home Care, or other support available from local charities such as Dementia Forward, Wetherby in Support of the Elderly (WiSE) or Age UK.

Oliver Stirk, Director of Carefound Home Care, commented: “We were delighted to have the opportunity to talk to local families about support available to elderly people in the area. Efforts like these are so important because many elderly people and their families struggle to know where to turn to for support and advice, and all too often people are being forced to make decisions in times of crisis.”

“We are very grateful to Morrisons in Harrogate, Ripon and Wetherby and Harrogate Hospital for accommodating such worthwhile events and people should look out for us as we continue to hold information stands on a regular basis.”
