A South Derbyshire firm specialising in caring for the elderly is holding an information day for those who are concerned about a relative.
Home Instead Senior Care, in Swadlincote, wants to provide people with an insight into caring for a loved one as well as what life is like working as a caregiver.
Home Instead is inviting members of the community to 2, Hill Street, Swadlincote, DE11 8HL to find out more about caring for their loved ones, from experts who will provide help and advice.
The event is billed as a great opportunity to talk to existing caregivers about their daily routines and experiences and meet the team.
Andy Ryans, owner of Home Instead Senior Care, said: "Often people are put in a crisis situation when an older parent suddenly becomes unable to support themselves anymore, and they just don’t know where to go to get help and support.
"So we thought it would be a great idea to hold a care information day so we can provide them with that much-needed information. There is a real interest in the care sector both now and for the future as our population ages.
"All of our fantastic caregivers come from a variety of different backgrounds, but they all have in common a real passion for helping others and caring for people in our local community.
"We are always happy to talk to people who may like to join us and really make a difference to an older person’s life. It can be as simple as taking them to the shops or enjoying a cup of tea and a natter.
"If anyone in our local community wants to know more about caring they should come along to our care information day; they will be made very welcome."
The care information day will run from 10am to 3pm, on Tuesday, September 12.
Home Instead Senior Care specialises in providing older people with a tailor-made service to suit their needs.
