Pippa Kelly is an award-winning blogger, journalist and author. She writes regularly in the national press and specialist publications about dementia, with which her mother lived for a decade, and elderly care issues. Pippa is an inspirational public speaker.
We have kind permission of both Pippa and Carers Oxfordshire to share Pippa’s talk about the long distance caring she shared with her siblings. This frank and personal account offers support as well as good advice on Continuing care allowance, Power of Attorney and in home care. Pippa talks about guilt, frustration and exhaustion as she moved her parents from their family home and into a ‘more suitable flat’ How they did it and how it made her feel. At the time Seniors Helping Seniors was not available in her parents town but happily we have now opened in Surrey (December 2017)!
Nourish We met Jane Clarke in the year we launched and have been following her ever since. Jane offers great advice and recipes for anyone with a frail appetite. Well worth a look.
Seniors Helping Seniors has tested recipes for healthy eating and slow cooking. We produced some tasty recipes using imperial measurements to help those who may deal better with ounces rather than grams. We also tried and tested recipes for slow cookers which we recommend for safety and low cost cooking. Ask your office for details!
