The SweetTree schedule…
1/ Private consultations
When? Throughout both days
Where? Stand B2
If you’re a family carer who is considering employing the services of a home care agency, but you’re unsure where to find the right information or support to take the next step, come and chat to our experienced and understanding team. We appreciate making the decision to hire home care for a loved one can be difficult, and we will therefore be offering free 20-minute one-to-one consultations, where you will have the chance to chat to us in confidence about your personal situation, so we can offer tailored advice that’s specific to your needs.

SweetTree’s newly appointed senior consultant, Dr Aimee Spector, will be leading a series of talks and practical workshops on Cognitive Stimulation Therapy and how it can benefit your loved one.
