About this Event

Experts and professionals from these services will be there to talk to you about services you may not even know about, and to answer your questions.

• North London Hospice

• University College London/ Marie Curie dementia care

Who can attend the event?

This event is open to members of the public who live, work or study in Enfield, or those who travel to Enfield to use NHS and care services. Whether you are making plans for yourself or a loved one, a parent, grandparent or friend, for now or in the future.

“Often carers need a break from their role, and we can advise on this.”

Corina Codrea, Healthcare trainer/ RN - Enfield Carers Centre

Why you should join the session

Not just older citizens, but everyone needs to plan for their later life at some point! If you are thinking about care homes for yourself or a loved one; how you will continue to care for someone or be cared for with Dementia or other illnesses, living with a life limiting condition or a younger practical person who likes to plan for every eventuality, then this session is for you.

“We look forward to chatting to people about our ethos and care. Providing a little insight into how we can support the local community and how the community supports us! ”.

Hannah Newton , Community Development Ambassador -North London Hospice

What to expect from the session

The short answer is that you can join the session by video or telephone. You can switch your camera off and mute your speaker if you want to. Just listening is fine. On the other hand if you would like to keep them switched on, that is fine too.

The panel of experts come from all areas of the health and care services and will start off by giving a short introduction about what services there are in Enfield that are available to you for free. They’ll discuss options and services you may not have even considered.

“It is good to understand what planning for later life means what it can involve, what people can actually plan for”.

Nathan Davies, University College London, Senior Research Analyst specialising in Dementia care

A Question and Answer session will follow, with priority being given to questions that have been submitted at the time of booking. Then we will take questions from the audience, either through the chat box or by raising your hand.

You can ask the questions yourself, or if you submit your question in advance, you can ask us to read it out on your behalf anonymously if you prefer.

Submit your questions

It is really helpful if you could send questions in advance at the time of booking. This helps us to fact check beforehand so we have all the information for you on the day.

“We are expecting all sorts of questions ranging from practical and financial to emotional. If we can’t help with something directly we will be able to direct you to services that are trustworthy, reliable and free, or not for profit”.

Kate Reader, Health & Wellbeing Navigator, Later Life Planning - Age UK Enfield

When booking your place you will be invited to submit a question if you wish. You will be given the option to ask the question yourself on the day or request that we ask it on your behalf anonymously if you prefer. Please note: questions submitted after the 25th January may not be included on the day.

We will also take questions from the audience on the day, either through the chat box or by raising your hand. But priority will be given to questions sent in advance.
