Supporting the Elderly in the Community Open Day
Last month we held a very successful open day. A wide variety of professional organisations, charities and voluntary groups attended, and I would like to thank them all for their efforts in bringing such vital and useful information to one platform.
One of the most interesting things is how so often different services do not link up as a joint force to help the elderly and vulnerable. What became apparent was that in Anglesey when someone has a problem and is looking for help for an elderly relative, they usually contact Age Cymru, which of course makes sense. They have considerable information and services to point people in the right direction.
However, some of the organisations seem to have been left on the periphery such as Carers Outreach, who support people who are directly looking after their relatives and MacMillian Cancer Support who provide valuable relief for terminal patients. Care fee funding was an interesting question and The Society of later Life Advisors (SOLLA) as well as a legal representative provided us with some very useful information.
As an organisation who continually campaigns to help people remain in their own homes, I felt that it was time we set up a detailed signposting system and so I will be launching an online directory available on our website listing as many of the appropriate services available on the island with testimonials from them and direct links to their websites.
The event itself raised over £100 for charity as well as our donation from our Facebook campaign which will be distributed between Carers Outreach and the Royal Voluntary Service. Please continue to like and share our posts as every click adds another £1 to the pot!
