There was a special Age UK Tameside Open Day today April 22nd, which enabled people to come and see what services are available and chat about their loved one's needs.
There were taster sessions available throughout the day, including holistic therapies, dance classes, singing, arts and crafts, reminiscence sessions, IT support and more. People were also able to view the newly designed, dementia friendly Independent Living Centre which provides a safe, secure and stimulating environment at an affordable cost.
Free NHS Health Checks are also offered at the centre. Even though you might be feeling great, if you're over forty you may be at risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes or dementia. A free NHS Health Check can help you reduce these risks and make sure that you stay healthy.
A spokesman at the Centre said "What a brilliant day we've had at our Open Day today! Thanks to everyone who came along to find out how we support older people in Tameside".
