The specialist elderly care team from Carefound Home Care held an information stand at a North Yorkshire health conference this week.

Healthwatch was setup in April 2013 as an independent consumer champion for health and social care in England, with the aim of championing the voice of local people and improving local services. Healthwatch North Yorkshire hosted a conference in Harrogate this week bringing together key stakeholders in the local health and care economy and residents of Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough and surrounding areas.

The conference was an opportunity for residents of the Harrogate and Rural District to find out what Healthwatch North Yorkshire have been doing and how they plan to engage with people going forwards. It also provided a chance for members of the public, patients, carers and voluntary and community organisations to meet with and hear from planners and providers of health and care in the Harrogate and Rural District.

The Carefound Home Care team spent the day speaking with local organisations and families, and in particular discussed how their specialist elderly home care and live in care services are improving the wellbeing of many local families. This includes the specialist support they provide to people experiencing dementia.
