Over 70 people attended the Carers Awareness event at Winchester House on Tuesday 12th June. We had a talk from Maggie Bennett about caring for people with dementia, speakers from GD Legal Services talked about the importance of having a Lasting Power of Attorney and how this protects both carers and the cared for person. Helen from IWC answered a range of financial questions and we had a demonstration from Telecare and Carers IW Manual Handling trainers. The Living Well team were present to help people understand that even if you were not eligible for Adult Social Care support that the IWC have recognised this and currently fund this team to assist with finding the right support for you.
