Carers zoom meeting – 13th Apr 2021

We had 30  members this evening. Lisa welcomed everyone and also welcomed her 2 visitors – Catherine Reed and Kath Vale from Dementia Adventure who were invited to talk to members about the holidays and services they provide. Kath did a presentation and also showed a short video and then members had a chance to ask questions. Everyone was very interested and in fact a couple of members had already booked beforehand.

When our visitors left about 8pm, the meeting then continued with various other discussions.

We also discussed care agencies. As Marcelo was at the meeting he was able to answer some questions this evening. He is the Managing Director of Christies Care. Rosetta also mentioned about the care company she works for called Unique Care and Lisa said that she would provide details of both in an email to members.

We also discussed care assessments and carers card scheme. Lisa provided this information a couple of weeks ago but informed members that she would email details again. Lisa  also said that she would try to invite Mike Rich CEO of Barnet Carers Centre to join our carers group meeting next Tuesday at 7pm to talk more about these and also to let us know about applying for any grants.

We also discussed personal alarms. Kevin mentioned a device which was recommended to him called Daytech Caregiver.

Lisa also mentioned about another device called Argenti care technology which offers peace of mind not only in and around the house but also when you go out and even abroad. Information can be obtained through Barnet Council or the Argenti website. Please see the link below;
