It is great to have our older clients back in Ashford Place again to enjoy our socially distanced weekly support groups in a cautious and safe way…..
Being back together in each other’s company, rather than in our smaller group or one to one sessions, is wonderful for their physical and mental wellbeing as they chat and have some fun together. They always come through the door armed with great big smiles and look forward to a nice cup of tea and conversation amongst their friends again. It is great to be able to open our doors to them always being very aware of keeping everyone safe by adhering to social distancing rules. There is a great sense of relief and achievement amongst them knowing that they have come through such a very tough year so well.
Our continued communication with our clients via phone calls or social distance visits since March 2020 when the pandemic began, has ensured that nobody has been left alone or isolated throughout. They have always felt supported and this shows in their enthusiasm to come back to us and pick up where they left off.
“I am absolutely delighted to be back and I am really looking forward to coming back next week” says one of our older clients as she happily came in for our support group and her smile was as strong when she was leaving to go home.
The past year has been very difficult for all our older clients in many ways. Our small exercise groups are wonderful to get them moving again and build their fitness again and this is beneficial to both their physical and mental wellbeing.
We look forward to seeing more and more of our clients in Ashford Place as time moves on.
Well done to all our older clients for keeping the spirits up and always keeping positive!
