Preparations for The Care Show, an event designed to provide information, access to products and suggest services that can help with care of older people, are nearing completion and organisers of the show are pleased to announced that the usual offerings of helpful information and innovative care products such as home stairlifts will be joined by a brand new Dementia Care Show.
The Care Show will be heading to the NEC in Birmingham from 12th-13th November and thousands of people are expected to attend this informative event. The show is designed to bring together a range of elements of the care industry and provide information on an array of products and services that are sure to be of interest to anyone with care responsibilities, particularly organisations of carers and homecare providers who help older people at home.
Those who attend the show will have access to over 200 leading suppliers of products and services that can help older people with mobility difficulties live comfortably and safely, and those who are looking for walk in shower aids and other useful products are sure to find the journey worthwhile; a number of suppliers will be offering exclusive Care Show deals.
As well as offering education on and access to a range of products that can help with the daily lives of older people who have mobility difficulties or require care, the show is also welcome to suppliers of products and exhibitors with ideas that can improve general wellbeing amongst older people. A special Wellbeing Zone will feature prominently at the show, a new addition that encourages improvement to other aspects of the lives of older people, and Care Show visitors will be able to have a massage, enjoy a cup of coffee and get their hair styled.
Another new addition to The Care Show will be the Dementia Care Show, which, like The Care Show itself, is also free to attend. This new Dementia Care Show will provide information specific to one of the most pressing concerns currently facing older people and the healthcare industry, and the experts exhibiting will be demonstrating a range of ideas that they believe are beneficial to those with dementia, including a walk-in immersive space that uses sounds, lights and projection to create an environment that can be used to care for those with dementia.
These new additions to the already successful Care Show are sure to make this November one of the highlights of the calendar for those involved with caring for older people. Click on this link to find out more about The Care Show 2013.
