Audience members will be given the opportunity to discover more about ‘assisted living’ options as well as contributing to the discussion, with the panel providing tailored, expert advice.

The event aims to make people aware of the alternatives to care homes and home care and is targeted at families who have older relatives who may not be coping as well as they could be.

Janine Devaney, Austin Heath community liaison manager, said: “Experience has shown us that many families spend time with their loved ones over the festive period and often identify that their parent or older relative is in need of additional support.

“Housekeeping and meal preparation are usually top of the list, however, retaining independence whilst receiving this extra support is crucial to the vast majority of people.

“At Inspired Villages, our ethos is centered around mental and physical well-being and encouraging our residents to live younger for longer.

“As such, we look forward to the discussion with Dr Dawn Harper and John Kennedy on how this is achievable whilst receiving the vital support that many may need.”

The event takes place on Thursday January 31 from 4pm to 6pm. The sessions are open to the public and will take place at the Austin Heath Village in Heathcote.
