Eden residents have a one-stop-shop for their health and wellbeing information as the new Eden Hub opens at Penrith Community Hospital.
Age UK Carlisle and Eden has employed the hub co-ordinator, Hazel Laithwaite to bring together all the community activities and services together to improve local links, keep people independent and improve the Health and Wellbeing of people in the Eden District. Carlisle Eden Mind have also employed a co-ordinator, Jo Laverick who is running regular drop in session in various locations in Penrith town centre. The Eden Health and wellbeing Hub is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 10 – 4pm and Fridays 10 – 12pm.
Hazel said: “The benefits of the Hub are available to local people of all ages and can be accessed alongside medical services and offer a none medical support network. If you are worried about something and don’t know where to turn or wish to find out what activities and services are available in your area, we can help at the Eden Health and Wellbeing Hub. I am assisted at the Hub by volunteers and anyone interested in getting involved can give me a call or call into the Hub at Penrith Community Hospital.”
