Ongoing support by our Day Centre staff
John and June joined us on a home visit to Gerald's garden. The men became friends from our Day Centre and have kept in contact away from the Centre too. Gerald's wife said, "Thank you so much. Gerald's been a lot more alert and chatty and is even coming out with new stories from the past." They all said they had a lovely time.
As Gerald used to be a photographer, we asked if he would take us for a walk around his garden and take a photo for us. It was great that he was up for the challenge and enjoyed it.
We visited Maureen in her garden and enjoyed doing some seated exercise and seated yoga to "Over the Rainbow" with her. Maureeen said it was nice to be outside as she doesn't go into the garden much.
We took Carers for a walk on the sea wall at Maldon and then to the prom for coffee and cake. They both commented that they really enjoyed the afternoon.
