Ellesmere House is inviting the local community to its free informative event on ‘Living well with diabetes’.
On Wednesday 29th November, from 2pm-4pm, the team at Ellesmere House will open the doors to the care home on Nightingale Place for its free event offering advice and guidance to all.
Diabetes specialist, Judy Downey, will be sharing information and advice on living well with, and preventing, type two diabetes. Ian Jones and Jonathan Griffin, from Complete Feet Care, will also be providing free foot assessments and recommendations on foot treatment for anyone that would like one.
After the talk there will be a Q&A session, and visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the team at Ellesmere House and take a tour of the care home.
Ellesmere House home manager, Francesca Keating, said: “At Ellesmere House we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of carers. Type-two diabetes has become common among older people, so learning how this can be prevented and managed is something that those caring for a loved one can benefit greatly from.
“We are looking forward to welcoming people to Ellesmere House for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
