Preparations are in hand for the 2012 Age UK Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin (previously Age Concern Shropshire T and W!) holiday. The holiday is 14th to 21st July, with pick-up points for holidaymakers all over the County. The group stay at the Queens Hotel in Llandudno on a Half Board basis, and the holiday is suitable for older folk who might otherwise find it difficult to have a holiday.
If as a holidaymaker you need a carer you are required to find, and bring, your own. The hotel and the volunteers make every effort to support individual needs, for example a bathroom with a shower rather than a bath, a frame around a toilet etc., really the things that you need when you are living at home. Volunteers are available at the hotel during the day, and in an emergency at night, and we all try our very best to ensure everyone has a good time.
If you are interested in coming on the holiday, please ring the Age UK office in Shrewsbury on 01743 233123 and ask to be sent an application form. All requested application forms are sent out at the same time in early March and it is strongly advised that you complete and return the form by return of post if possible. There are only 11 single rooms in the hotel and these are always filled very quickly. We hope to see you in Llandudno!
