Every Tuesday Venue: Crossfield Court Independent Living Scheme for over 60sEvery Wednesday: Masson Court Independent Living Scheme for over 60sEvery Thursday: To Be Announced (Another Independent Living Scheme for over 60s)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.
Starting Saturday 26th of January 2019 and every fortnight from 6pm to 9pm.
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).
Day trips to places such as London, Bath, Scarborough, Skegness & others that may be of interest to our service users.
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 do soup runs a few days of the week especially during the winter time when the weather is cold, and very light refreshments during the summer time, which include freshly made smoothies.
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.
This is to take people to town for the day/or a few hours for window shopping and coffee/tea. This will help them in becoming more aware about what is new around them.
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.
