There will be a free exhibition of health and social care services on Tuesday (April 1) at the Royal British Legion Hall in Port Erin.
The information day aims to provide practical advice and information to help older people access the support they need to remain in their own homes, improve quality of life and enable them to lead as fulfilling and independent life as possible.
The southern information day will showcase government services such as occupational therapy, ‘Live Well Stay Well’, the memory clinic and home care as well as the Treasury benefits section.
Representatives from other private and voluntary organisations, such as the southern community initiatives ‘Hub Club’, Manx Decaf, Manx Blind Welfare Society, will raise awareness of the range of support and advice available in the south of the island for older people and their carers.
Karen Howard, older persons’ community social worker, said: ‘The southern information day will provide expertise, support and advice all under one roof in an informal setting and also provide valuable networking opportunities for the many different agencies involved.
‘Please come down to Port Erin on April 1 to visit the free exhibition and find out how you and your family can be supported by the many services and organisations in your local area.’
The event takes place between 10am and 5pm, with free admission. There will also be light refreshments with all proceeds being split between the Royal British Legion and Manx DECAF Dementia Café.
