One very happy lady is trying on new slippers at Letchworth Library Slipper Swap Social event. The anti-slip footwear is provided FREE to help peopl
e to stay safe and well at home.
Event visitors were advised how to avoid falls by an Occupational Therapist and given booklets to take home. Lots of other information, advice and support was available.
We also asked local groups and clubs to send someone along to talk about what happens at the sessions and to invite event visitors to join in. The aim is to connect people to activities in the community, reducing isolation and loneliness.
If you know of someone who might wish to attend – let them know or bring them along.
So far events have taken place in Rickmansworth, Letchworth and Borehamwood Libraries. These have been appreciated by visitors, one said:
'Brilliant idea - everything explained in detail and understood.'
The next event will be at Hoddesdon Library on Tuesday 13 Nov 2018 at 10.00 am - 12.00 noon.
Other event details are listed below.
There is no need to book, just come along.
Friday 30 Nov 2018 10.00-12.00 Radlett Library
Tuesday 4 Dec 2018 10.00-12.00 Welwyn Garden City Central Library
