First Older People’s Day offers guidance on health
SOUTHPORT and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust is hosting its first Older People’s Day on Thursday, October 5, with representatives from the hospital and other organisations on hand to provide advice and information.
Physiotherapy, rheumatology and frailty are just some of the hospital services on hand throughout the day. Macmillan, Stroke Association and the Alzheimer’s Society will be available too, along with information about dementia, orthopaedics, mental health and many other conditions.
Megan Langley, medical and surgical therapy team leader at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, said: “Our Older People’s Day is a great way for the public, patients and their families to get information on a range of conditions and available services in one place. We are here to answer any questions you might have or point you in the right direction.
“This is our first Older People’s Day but if people find it useful, we’re hoping to make it an annual event.”
The event is being held in the Clinical Education Centre at Southport Hospital, from 9am to 1pm on Thursday October 5.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available.
