Carers registering and attending this event will be entered into a Prize Draw for a Tablet PC and a free buffet lunch will be available between 12.30 – 1.30pm.
If you provide unpaid care to a family member or friend (otherwise known as ‘a carer’), or are in a job that helps carers in any way, then this event is for you! Leading organisations developing and supplying technological products designed to support carers and ease their caring role will be at The Spark, Southampton Solent University on Tuesday 19th March 2019. Carers can book a free lunch which will be available between 12.30pm and 1.30pm. People attending will be given the opportunity to try out the different products, enjoy demonstrations from care technology experts, discuss with them the day to day challenges of looking after someone and find out what carers have found useful. The event will include leaders in the care industry who will be showing their newest inventions and services that can help carers to be more independent and better able to live their own life alongside their caring role. Technologies on show can help carers coordinate care, manage medicines, cope with anxiety, get alerts in case of emergency and allow them to check in on their loved ones even when they can’t be physically there. It’s also a fantastic opportunity for carers to find out more about support on offer to them and network with other carers in a friendly and supportive environment. Carers in Southampton, a local carers support organisation, will be there to talk to carers and agency staff about the services they can provide to carers, including carers’ assessments and carers’ cards.
Councillor Lorna Fielker, Cabinet Member for Adult Care said: “This will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, see what is currently available for carers and their families and also get a glimpse of new innovations being developed to help increase independence and reduce the pressure on the role as carer.”
