Get Set for Winter!

Get set for winter community events and Slipper Swaps are being held in libraries across Hertfordshire so local people can find out how to avoid falls and stay warm and well over winter.

Old worn out slippers cause trips and falls, often leading to hospital stays and reducing independence. Come along and pick up a new anti-slip pair. Lots of helpful information and advice will be available. Visitors can learn about equipment and aids to help stay safe at home and try some falls prevention exercises guided by Occupational Therapists and Social Workers.

Memory Boxes and other Reminiscence Collection items will be on display. These help people with memory loss and their families and carers. Library members can borrow these free.

Learn more about the Home Library Service and the benefits of a Carers Library Card.  Libraries are also now information points for social care enquiries. Library staff will be happy to help with queries about any of these services and to set up or update membership.
