Share information on helping elderly

EASTBOURNE firefighters are extending an open invitation to anyone who works closely with the elderly in their homes to find out more about keeping those they care for safe.

East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service has teamed up with 3VA, a voluntary service which exists to enhance the quality of life for people in Eastbourne and surrounding parishes, to organise a safety event.

Connecting People II is being held at the Winter Garden on January 25 from 2.30pm to 5pm.

Borough Commander Julie Gilbert-King said, “The intention is to bring together all agencies that go into elderly people’s homes to share information and contact details so we can help each other to help our clients and meet all of their needs.

“If you, or your organisation, work with elderly people in their homes, come along to this free networking event to share your knowledge and learn from others to further develop working together.”
