10:20am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
A DAY celebrating the achievements and contributions of elderly people has been held in Bromsgrove.
The Bromsgrove Forum for Older People, with support from home care company Home Instead Senior Care Bromsgrove, organised an event for national Older People’s Day.
The day, held on October 1, annually supports the wider campaign to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes about elderly people.
The event, held at Bromsgrove Methodist Centre, included a group exercise session and free advice from organisations and volunteers who support the elderly in Bromsgrove.
Annie Dixon-Dunn, from Home Instead, said: "It was a wonderful event where we were able to get out into the community and listen to some wonderful stories from people who really were full of life."
