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?

Are you: 

  • Involved in caring for an elderly family member?

  • 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?

What to expect on the day

Our third Learning to Care event will be focused on making the home environment safe.

  • Jackie Prescott will be speaking on her personal experience of supporting her elderly mother

  • Beth Colquhorn from Birdie will be explaining some of the latest technology available to help keep someone safe in their own home

  • Helen Reeves, an osteopath from The Vale Practice will talk on how to prevent falls 

  • Zara Dsouza from Natwest and PC Dan McLynn from the Dulwich Village Safer Neighbourhood team will go through some of the current door to door, by post and online scams and will give tips on how to spot them and avoid being caught

We will also be presenting our new film ‘Safety in the Home’
