A talk by a paramedic at Sharston House nursing home in Knutsford from 10am to 12.30pm on Thursday, January 25 will cover topics of special importance to elderly people.
Carol Robertson, a community specialist paramedic with North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, will provide advice on what to do if someone has a fall, how to carry out cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and in what circumstances you should call 999.

The talk, open to the public, will take place during the home’s monthly “care café” coffee morning.
The event, being relaunched for the New Year with monthly speakers, is aimed at carers in the community but anyone else is also invited to come along to the Kingsley Healthcare home in Manor Park South for a chat over coffee and cakes.
Sharston activities coordinator Stacey Hinton said: “Carol says her presentation will be wide-ranging but she will also answer any questions people may have.
“As well as the talk we will prepare a spread of cakes, cream and jam scones and other refreshments.”
She said she planned to invite topical speakers to future care cafes, which always take place on the last Thursday of every month.
Sharston manager David Costa said: “This is our way of saying, ‘if you care, we care’.
“You might work as a carer, care for a family member or just help out your neighbour by doing their shopping for them once a week. We want to say thank you to you all.
“It is really important for our residents to still feel part of their community and this is a great way of bringing people into the home from the local area.”
