Advice event for family carers in Stroud

Home news

The team at Scarlet House care home in Stroud is hosting a free advice-led event on Thursday 19th May and local people are invited to find out more about Stroke and Parkinson’s awareness.  

From 11am-12.30pm and 2pm-4pm, the team at the home on Westwood Road will be joined by specialist Parkinson’s nurse, Helouise Wiltshire and a representative from the Stroke Association.

Helouise will offer helpful guidance and practical tips for improving the everyday lives of people living with Parkinson’s. She will also signpost attendees to further information on local support groups and specialist Parkinson’s services in Stroud and the surrounding areas.  

A representative from the Stroke Association will also be on hand to provide access to expert advice and a range of resources, which are available for those in the different stages of recovery. The professional will also cover how to recognise the signs of a stroke and a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) – commonly known as a mini stroke.

Pyela Mwale, home manager at Scarlet House, said: “We have listened to the local community, and Stroke and Parkinson’s awareness are areas where advice and guidance are regularly sought by those who care for an older friend or loved one.  We have therefore invited two experienced professionals to Scarlet House for a day of information and support. 

“We are looking forward to opening the doors to local people and, after each of these talks, visitors can take the opportunity to ask questions. There will also be a chance to meet the team at Scarlet House and to take a look around the care home. All are welcome, however places are limited so I would urge those interested to register their attendance.”
