A Stitch In Time Conference

A Stitch in Time conference, brought to you by Oxalis Health Coaching and Carers in Bedfordshire, is a chance to discover everything you need to know in order to support elderly parents. 

A Stitch in Time Conference- Saturday 9th June 

9:30-4:30 at Pilgrim Centre, Brickhill Drive, Bedford, MK41 7PZ

We understand that the demands of work combined with those of dependent relatives can become more difficult over time and learning how to best support your parents can be tough, especially if subjects such as; the care system, housing, wills & financial planning, health & dementia might be a completely new concept to you.

This conference aims to make the process a little simpler for you by providing a one-day conference which will give answers to some of your questions, providing tips and information about resources and services so that you can make informed choices. It will build your confidence for talking to your parents, other family members and professionals such as Social Services.

You will also have a chance to explore any ongoing support needs and there will be opportunities to network with others in a similar situation.
