AT our September meeting we welcomed our speaker Carol Lewis from the Independent Living Service.
The Independent Living Service works in partnership with East Sussex County Council, NHS, district and borough councils, the local community and voluntary sector.
The service is available to adults who live in the county of East Sussex.
Carol spoke on suitable daily living equipment. Installing ramps, grab rails, lighting, welfare entitlements, home security, reducing energy bills, handyperson services, carers support and Lifeline.
Members found the talk very useful, and many have arranged for a person to visit them for further help, and advice.
Our next meeting is on October 16 when we will have a quiz with prizes, and a book stall.
We meet on the third Wednesday of each month from 2pm to 4pm at the Friends Meeting House, South Terrace. All enquiries ring 01424 717709.
