Neath Port Talbot Health and Wellbeing Strategy Day

    This was an opportunity to meet and exchange information with other service providers in the Neath Port Talbot area. It's amazing how many people and organisations there are out there, offering help and opportunities to cover all sorts of needs.

The British Lung Foundation supports people with lung conditions and their carers. We now have a new page on our website which is just for carers 

Our helpline number has changed too to 03000 030 555. This will be a much cheaper service for all landline and mobile phone users.

Wills and other legal stuff.

We had an interesting talk from Rhian Williams and Adrian Morley, from Hutchinson Thomas, Solicitors and Notaries. Rhian talked about how important it is to make a will to be sure that all your property goes exactly where you want it to go. She also had interesting things to tell us about funding care in a care home, and how that works. If you haven't made provision for the future, it's certainly something you probably should be thinking about.

No Smoking Day

We were involved in the ITV Wales programme Wales this Week, which was all about trying to give up smoking and the reasons why it's a good idea to do so. You only have to look at me, living with COPD and Doug who is now a carer, to realise that we don't exactly have the retirement we were both looking forward to. So, to quote my grandaughter, "If you smoke, just stop it now !"  
Lots of my friends called after it was shown to tell us they love our new kitchen - maybe they didn't listen to the message in the program.
