Update on Events
Tuesday 20th August—’Have Your Say Meeting’
Speakers from the Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust attended to talk about keeping hydrated to avoid infections especially in the Over 65’s. Water is obviously the best fluid to keep yourself hydrated. Adding fruit juice to it may take away the blandness of drinking just water. Tea and coffee can count but there added issues with what else in contained within these drinks so use it as part of your fluid intake alongside water. Don’t forget, watery fruit and vegetables such as Watermelon, Strawberries and Cucumber to name a few also have a lot of water contained within them so they can also be used as a boost to your water intake.
Thursday 29th August—’Mobility Scooter Surgery’ -
Occupational Therapists from the William Merritt Centre visited with information on the correct use of Mobility Scooters on our Paths and Highways. Those attending had the opportunity to try out their skills on scooters on a coned out path area the rear of Mason House. All those attending seemed to have a good time and get some valuable information on using such scooters.
