What is the Learning to Care project?
The Learning to Care project at Bell House has been set up to help educate people on how to care for and support their elderly family, friends and neighbours through a series of talks and short films. With an ageing population, it is vital that we educate ourselves now on the best ways to offer support to the elderly people in our lives.
Is this event for me?

Wanting to know more about how to support an elderly person in your life to stay in their own home and maintain their independence for as long as possible?
An older member of the community wanting advice on how to continue to live independently in a safe manner?
Eager to learn more about the symptoms of dementia and services available to offer support?
What to expect on the day
