Colne view encourages local people to stay safe in older age

November 21st 2018


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

On Wednesday 5th December from 2pm - 4pm, the Care UK team at Colne View will open the doors to the care home for its first ‘Safety in older age’ event. 

Essex Police and Essex County Fire and Rescue Service will be on hand to share information and helpful tips on fire safety 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.

Representatives from NatWest will also be offering guidance on scam awareness and cold calling.

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

Razvan Stanbeca, home manager at Colne View, said:“Here at Colne View, 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 Colne View for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
