myhomecareie.wpengine.com will be exhibiting at the Age-Friendly Consumer Fair at Darver Castle, Co.Louth on the 7th of October. The fair will be showcasing a range of innovative products and services designed to enhance and secure our lives as we live longer.
The following information is from the organisers:
People are living longer and older people represent a rapidly increasing percentage of the total population; this is estimated to increase from 11% in 2006 to 22% in 2036 and 29% in 2056, for those aged 85 and over, there will be an even larger proportional increase.
As we grow older our needs and aspirations change, so what range of products and services are available to help enhance the wonderful opportunity of living longer?
Within the Northeast region, Louth is seen as leading the way in developing a range of age-friendly initiatives and related new products and services. These developments are happening across the board with businesses, within communities and among the public services.
As another first, our Age-Friendly Consumer Fair will seek to provide information on what products and services are available for older people.
- Learn how new innovate products can assist in the daily activities of living
- Learn about services that are available to support you or a loved one in their own home and in the community.
- Listen to informative talks on matters that concern older people
There will be over 60 exhibitors and leading figures from caring and support services, technology, finance, fashion, law and many more on hand to give advice and provide valuable information. See a profile of all exhibitors on www.louthagefriendlycounty.ie and multiple media.
We look forward to seeing you at the Age-Friendly Consumer Fair taking place on Sunday 7th October inDarverCastle from 11:00am to 5:00pm.
