The information day organised by Prama saw a host of stands showcasing the support available to all the carers in the community.
Barchester Healthcare supplied goody bags for the Leonardo Trust to give out and several other businesses also provided treats to go inside the bags.
Home services advisors from local Barchester homes manned a stand at the event to give out information and advice on Barchester’s services.
“It was lovely to see some of the carers who come to our support groups at Kings Park here at Carers’ Rights Day finding further advice and support,” said Lucy Lester who talked about Kings Park’s community café which runs on the third Tuesday of each month.
Michelle Venn of Moors Manor Care Home in Ringwood discussed the upcoming Christmas Fete on 11 December, and the home’s community café which runs on the first Tuesday of the month, and Sophie Payne from Upton Bay in Hamworthy discussed the events they have running throughout December as well as their carers’ café.
Michelle commented: “It has been a wonderful day, it is lovely to hear each and every story from the community. Carers do an amazing job and we welcome them along to our homes to carry on these conversations and for us to support them and thank them for all that they do. Thank you to Prama for organising a brilliant event.”
