Find out how to access local support services at the West Lancashire Community Health & Wellbeing Festival on 25 October

Community health and wellbeing festival 2018, Macmillan Cancer support

On Thursday 25 October, Mooney Everett Solicitors will be at the Community Health and Wellbeing Festival, hosted by Macmillan Cancer Support, Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust and NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group.

The festival is organised by MacMillan West Lancs, who understand how hard it can be for people with critical illnesses to access local support services, but for the first time it is being opened to all, not just those affected by cancer. It will be held at West Lancashire College from 2 to 4.30 pm.

The aim of the festival is to support and empower people to self-manage their condition, by increasing their knowledge of local services and reducing anxiety about where to get help.

With the voluntary, charitable and health sectors all available under one roof, this a fantastic opportunity to find out about the wide range of wellbeing and support services available in West Lancashire.

Mooney Everett Solicitors have been invited to offer advice and guidance on the legal steps that everyone should consider for safeguarding the long-term physical and mental health and wellbeing of yourself, your family and your carers.

Pam Hughes and Susan Ward from Mooney Everett Solicitors will be at hand to discuss making a will, making lasting powers of attorney and any other legal issues. We are even holding a raffle, where you could have the chance to win a free will for yourself or a member of your family.

‘Looking after your own health and wellbeing is extremely important’, says Pam Hughes, ‘And it is even more important if you are caring for someone else.’

‘Knowing where to get help and planning ahead is a key part of self-managing any mental or physical illness. We will be at the festival to talk about legal issues or plans so people are more equipped and feel comfortable seeking help when they need it most.’

There will also be talks on fatigue, stress management and anxiety, the importance of staying active, healthy eating and weight management. Visitors can also try out complementary therapies and have a blood pressure check.

We hope to see you there!
