Harrogate Neighbours has teamed up with a group of local advisors to offer guidance to people within the community seeking resources, services on Health and Social Care.
“Care Fest”, which will be held at The Cuttings on Wednesday 3 August from 3pm-4.30pm and 5pm-6.30pm is open to the public and has been organised by the care team at Harrogate Neighbours in response to feedback from people caring for loved ones not being able to access the right information and support when needed.
Harrogate Neighbours will be joined by Powell Eddison, providing information on Estate and Wills, Sandringham Financial Partnership (financial planning), Full Circle Funerals and Just ‘B’ Bereavement, a local helpline offering wellbeing and bereavement support.
Harrogate Neighbours has said it is a forum for advice, rather than selling.
They will provide advice on all areas, such as arranging finances, wills, LPA’s funeral planning, supporting well-being and other complex matters to provide that much-needed support at a difficult and uncertain time.
The team at Harrogate Neighbours will also provide information to guests on how the organisation works and the many different services available to them and their loved ones, from care in people’s own homes to the award-winning meals on wheels service.
Harrogate Neighbours, Sue Cawthray, CEO said:
As a community care provider we feel it is our responsibility to support people in need of help and advice. The journey into older persons care can be an extremely confusing matter to navigate, so we wanted to create a safe space where people can come and find out more about what different services are available to them throughout the process.
We are extremely grateful to the local experts who are giving up their time to offer free, no obligation advice. We look forward to welcoming anyone who feels unsure about how to manage this process for themselves or a loved one whether it be now, or in the future.
