The theme for the forthcoming forum is preventative health, and will have speakers and information about keeping well during the winter months, good mental health in older age, and new dementia services in the district.
Free health checks will also be available.
Formerly called the Older Persons’ Forum, members voted in the name change at the last meeting in September, with the hope of attracting more residents.
Chair of the newly named forum, Cllr Marian Broomhead, said:
“There is no change to current members. However, I hope the name change will encourage new members to come along and benefit from getting the information available at an earlier stage.
“Even if you don’t need help now, it’s good to get advice and find out what help is out there so as to prevent problems occurring in later life. The forum is also of great benefit to those aged 50 or over that are carers for parents or loved ones.”
The next meeting is taking place on Monday 1 December at 2.00-4.00pm in the Council Chamber at Blaby District Council, Desford Road, Narborough LE19 2EP.
