Do you want to find out about support for Independent Living? Are you interested in improving Community Care Equipment/Services in Kirklees?

About this event

Come along to the Independent Living Forum.

Medequip and Healthwatch Kirkees have set up this new forum to support the continuous improvement of the community care equipment services provided to people in Kirklees.

Medequip Kirklees operations manager Mark Rance will be there to listen to what you have to say and take your ideas directly to those who can make changes to care equipment and services in Kirklees.

Do you have mobility and care equipment needs for yourself or others?

By joining the Independent Living Forum you can connect, share your stories and help others like you. The forum offers a welcome space for you to talk about what works for you and what would make your life easier so services and products can be improved based on what you think and need.

Changes do happen

You said: Last year via a similar forum 500 of Medequip’s most vulnerable customers in Carlisle said they loved the personal alarm systems and they’d feel even safer if there was someone they could contact 24/7.

We did: In response, in May 2021 Medequip launched the Connect Service, providing a 24-hour Emergency Response service developed to provide total protection for elderly and vulnerable users in Carlisle.

Don't miss your chance to take part

The first forum takes place on Wednesday 3rd November from 2-3pm via Zoom. If you can't make it to this first event but would like to find out more or express your interest in future forums please get in touch with our friendly team by phone or email.
