Every Tuesday Venue: Crossfield Court Independent Living Scheme for over 65sEvery Thursday: To Be Announced (Another Independent Living Scheme for over 65s)This is to provide that little bit extra of their dietary needs as many of our older adults are unable to make themselves cooked breakfast. Also, it is a time to socialise with other residents within the complex.Again, another way to promote social inclusion and to reduce the impact of loneliness.
On every other Friday every month, we organise currie night for the residents and community friends at Crossfield Court, Top Valley, Nottingham.
Going to the hospital can be a scary time for many, especially those who are on their own with very little to no family members around. This service is to pay them a visit whilst they are in the hospital or to escort them around if they have appointment(s).
What A Very Lonely World!In a world where we are suppose to be our brother's keeper, a world where we try to live everyday as if tomorrow is guaranteed, a world where pets are valued more than humans, a world where greed is a common occurrence and liars have a better quality of life than those who live and would die for the truth, we are then wondering why mental illnesses are on the rise.We are wondering why suicidal rate in men continue to grow, children as young as 10 years of age are commonly diagnosed with depression and social anxiety, maybe it is about time we change our focus and begin to look closer to home, home as in our inner selves.Our 'Next Of Kin' service that targets those who have very little or no immediate family contact. We work closely with social services and care givers and one thing they wish they could do more about is supporting those who have no family members to support them in getting the basic things in life done. If you decide to choose us as your next of kin, you will need to complete our full membership form.This will allow us to know more about you and what you wish to achieve. As a full member, we will be conducting regular checks on you, go to hospital with you if you ever have to go in, we will work with you to ensure your bills are covered and all institutions/companies are liaised with on your behalf so you do not end up in debt or with unpleasant charges.We will be by your side to ensure you are NEVER ALONE..
this is a programme for those with social anxiety. We know that many people find going out very traumatic, especially if they have not been out for a long time, or do not have someone to talk to along the way. Baby Steps to Brave Steps will help them to take those steps with a group of a maximum of 3 people. This will help to build their confidence and be able to take those brave steps alone.
We know in summer time there are lots of summer events, but they are only appealing if we go with others or have enough help and support to get us there, this is why we have our own community summer barbeque where we can focus on those people who would benefit from it the most.
Many elderly are living in a very uncomfortable situation due to old age and health conditions which continue to prevent them keeping their home tidy.Carers struggles to get to give personal care as there is no space to move around, even with three wheelie stroller.If you are supporting someone whom you think can do with a good clear out and clean up, do feel free to contact us. Let us help your service user to start living again, so they do not miss out on those things that can hellp improve their total wellbeing.
this is our icing on the cake. We love celebrating Christmas and every year, we cannot wait to celebrate it as part of a community because we see our community as our family. Festive loneliness is very disheartening for many, hence why there are more people being admitted into hospitals during the Christmas season.
