Afternoon tea and armchair exercises for Council Chairman
County Council Chairman Val Letheren enjoyed afternoon tea and some gentle armchair exercising when she attended an event held by care provider Home Instead recently.
Val was invited to attend the event to find out more about the organisation and the work they do in helping older people stay independent in their own homes.
The Aylesbury Vale and North East Oxfordshire branch of Home Instead hosted the event at the Holiday Inn in Weston Turville.
Val said: “Buckinghamshire has a large population of older residents so it is great to see organisations such as Home Instead providing services and support to help people stay living independently for longer.”
Home Instead is a previous winner of a number of Dignity in Care awards around the country. Buckinghamshire County Council has just launched nominations for this year’s awards.
