Free advice event returns to Francis Court

July 13th 2017

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.”

Our care home in Copthorne, north east of Crawley, cares for up to 87 older people in luxurious, purpose-built surroundings. Every bedroom has an en-suite wet room, and around the home are beautifully designed spaces for relaxing or enjoying activities. Francis Court even has its own hair salon and lovely landscaped gardens. Residents keep busy every day with activities designed around their interests. They’re welcome to do small tasks around the home, and on sunny days residents are often out in the garden, enjoying a cup of tea, a stroll or some gardening.
