Louth Age Friendly Business Consumer Fair

– Proudly sponsored by Myhomecare

We are proud to say that Louth is the first Age Friendly County in Ireland, leading the way for others to follow as we create a range of age-friendly initiatives to support our communities in living longer, happier lives at home with their families and loved ones. Over the past number of years, local businesses, community groups and the public have come together to create this fantastic annual event and promote positive aging in Louth.

When many of us think about growing older, we have a perception of an elderly lady or man sitting in a rocking chair with a blanket, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Myhomecare would like to invite you along to the LouthLouth Age Friendly Poster - Sponsored by Myhomecare Age Friendly Business Consumer Fair in the Crowne Plaza Hotel this Sunday, October 4th and show you the true side of aging in our Age Friendly County. As we get older our needs and aspirations start to change, things that would have been irrelevant before become top of our priority list.  The Louth Age friendly Business Consumer Fair have put together a spectacular day to assist you in learning about the range of products and services available to support you in living longer and happier lives.

As the main sponsor of this Louth Age Friendly event, Myhomecare promise a fun afternoon of entertainment, guest speakers, exhibitors, music and of course great craic. We will also be launching our fully integrated care planning and monitoring application service myhomecareConnect.
