Good Care Day Header

As a part of Good Care Week this year we will be hosting our second Good Care Day on 16th April 2014 here at our Training Centre in Saxmundham.

Here are the speakers from last years event:

The focus of this year’s event will be care for people who have suffered a stroke, and we’ll have talks from The Stroke Association, Age UK, Headway Suffolk Services and someone with personal experience of a stroke.  As well as this we’ll have a representative from Gotelee Solicitors, The Hearing Care Centre (who will have their mobile hearing unit with them), The Co-op and Suffolk Family Carers.

With a packed agenda, the day is open to all and free to attend.  If you are interested in coming along please just let us know as places will be limited.  Just email or call us on 01728 605013.
