Care companies and charities united to provide information to older people living in Worle.

Home Instead Senior Care hosted the older person’s information day event at Hope Church in The Scaurs, Worle.

Exhibitors promoted their services and offered advice, while there was also entertainment and cakes on offer.

Home Instead Senior Care’s managing director Mike Keig said: “The aim of the event was to help people discover products and services available in their local area to help make their lives easier, and keep them independently living at home.

“The day went really well, and we will be looking at making this an annual event after this year’s success.”

The singing and friendship group The Goldies provided the entertainment, and many people joined in with the music and dancing.

The sale of cakes, teas and coffees also raised £70 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
