Moray’s elderly urged to attend care and support showcase

Alexander Graham Bell Centre

Older people are being urged to attend an event aimed at showcasing how Moray is investing in care and support services that better meet their needs.

‘Getting On’ is an older people’s information fair being hosted by the Alexander Graham Bell Centre at Moray College UHI.

The event centres on how the region has used its share of Scottish Change Funding, with a particular focus on building supportive local communities and modernising community healh and social care services.

Other projects on which development has been allowed because of the funding is the use of assistive technology, supporting carers, improving housing and improving dementia care.

The event is the second of its kind organised by the Moray Community Health and Social Care Partnership and the Moray Older People’s Reference Group.

A spokeswoman said: “The Group played a key role in ensuring older people were involved in the development of Moray’s ‘Living Longer, Living Better’ strategy.

“That is a 10-year plan setting out how all the sectors will continue to work in partnership with older people to respond to their needs and expectations by reshaping the way services are planned, funded and delivered.

“The event is open to the public and health and social care staff and refreshments will be provided.”

Getting On will be held on Friday, June 20 from 10am to 3pm. Further details on the event can be obtained from Sandra Gracie on 01343 567184 or by email to
