Raising Awareness Of Frailty And Supported Self-care Event

There will be two events held in Telford and Wrekin and Shrewsbury on the following dates:

  • Telford – Wednesday 15th June 2016 at The Ramada Hotel
  • Shrewsbury – Wednesday 13th July 2016 at The Shrewsbury Town Football Club

There are 3 different sessions that you can participate in, these are:


12.00-2.30pm (includes lunch at 12)


This event is designed for up to 25 participants per session. These innovative and interactive 2-hour sessions are designed to build understanding and empathy for older people with frailty and introduce the core principles and skills of supported self-care for this population group. The events are designed for care professionals for whom attending a whole day training event is not feasible and are based on individual learning and experience. They complement the multi-disciplinary, multi-agency team based sessions and focus on awareness building, imparting knowledge, highlighting skills and providing a practical, empathy building experience through the Virtual Reality simulation.

If you would like to book on this session or you would like more information, please contact myself via email on lauren.pike@shropdoc.nhs.uk or phone me on 01743 454900.
