FREE 'Supportive Communities' Training
Thu 9 Jul 2020
Do you support older people in your community?
- If someone needed information and advice on staying healthy and independent, could you point them in the right direction?
- What if someone wanted to learn how to video call their friends or family, could you help them?
- If you were concerned about someone’s safety and wellbeing, would you know what to do?
Not sure? Then the ‘Supportive Communities Training’ is for you!
‘Supportive Communities’ is a programme of work that supports older people to stay healthy and independent for longer. It’s about:
- Supporting people to stay connected with their local community.
- Helping people to find different solutions, so they can stay in their own homes for longer. This could be a new piece of daily living equipment or technology that supports independence.
- Encouraging people to look after their own health and wellbeing, so they can lead a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.
