Today at the library, Warwickshire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment – health and well being needs. Members of the local community and stakeholders are invited to a drop in session to give their views. 9am – 12pm.
Warwickshire County Council are reviewing their Older People’s Day Opportunities services. These services are those provided to people aged 65 yrs or over within their local community (often in a building based setting such as a day centre), which offer activities to help support individuals health and wellbeing and provide social interaction and stimulation. They can also provide an opportunity for carers, family members or friends to have a break from their caring role.
A review is being undertaken to discover if the services are achieving their aims and meeting people’s needs, but also whether older people in Warwickshire feel part of their local community and are not isolated.
You can respond to the consultation online until 5 November:
Join Paul Wilkins for a free taster session and introduction to Family History Research. In the library at 11am.
