Francis Court is inviting the local community to its free informative event on ‘Living Well with Diabetes’.
On Thursday 20th July, from 2pm-4.30pm, the team at Francis Court will open the doors to the care home on Borers Arms Road for its free event offering advice and guidance to all.
Diabetes specialist, Jayne Friar, a diabetic practice nurse from Pound Hill and Copthorne Surgery, will be sharing important information and giving the latest advice and tips on living well with, and preventing, type-two diabetes.
After the event there will be a Q&A session, and visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the team at Francis Court and take a tour of the care home.
Francis Court home manager, Mary Ann Ballesteros, said: “At Francis Court we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of carers. Type-two diabetes can become very common among older people, so learning how this can be prevented and managed is something that those caring for a loved one can benefit from.
“We are looking forward to welcoming people to Francis Court for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
