Cavell Court encourages local people to stay safe in older age

September 4th 2018

 

Cavell Court is inviting the community to its free event aimed at keeping older people safe – particularly those who live alone. 

On Wednesday 12th September from 1.30pm - 4pm, the team at Cavell Court will open the doors to the care home for its first Safety in older age event. 

Norfolk Police and Trading Standards will be on hand to share information and helpful tips on scam awareness, cold calling, and protection against fraud. There will also be advice on offer about a range of alarms and equipment to help older people to maintain their independence in their own homes.

The care team is also welcoming representatives from Age UK Norwich and South Norfolk Council Help Hub to the home. They will provide expert advice and guidance on staying safe at home, as well as sharing information on support available in the community. 

There will be information available to take home, and the opportunity to meet the friendly team at Cavell Court, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Jennie Rodger, home manager at Cavell Court, said: “Here at Cavell Court, we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of older people and the loved ones who may be caring for them. 

“Our free advice events always prove to be popular occasions for the local community, and while this is the first time we’ve held an event on this subject, we feel that as it is very topical and relevant in today’s society. 

“We are looking forward to welcoming local people to Cavell Court for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
