What's been going on in our Independent Living schemes this spring?
Throughout April, May, and June, we have covered a wide range of events and activities within our independent living schemes, ranging from chair fitness classes to men’s pie afternoons!
But of course, we cannot forget the many celebrations for the Queen’s Jubilee, as we held parties at Jubilee Court; Bashall Grove; Bridge Court; Northbrook Gardens; Hennel House; Ancenis Court and St John’s Court.
Our Easter event at St Gerard’s in Lostock Hall was very popular, with more than 70 tenants joining us! Our independent living tenants also took part in our Easter bonnet and egg decorating competition.
We have also been holding weekly chair fitness classes, afternoon teas with live entertainment, garden renovations, digital online help sessions provided by Age UK, monthly men’s pie afternoons, bacon butty mornings, and summer musicals.
Our tenants have certainly been having fun, as they told us:
“I haven’t been out properly since the pandemic, and I’m so glad I did. I have had a wonderful time.”
“Thank you for the party, Danni. It is what we all needed.”
“The musical was so much fun. Thank you for arranging this for us.”
“You have done yourself proud. Thank you for the lovely food and entertainment today.”
“I am really enjoying the chair fitness classes. They get me out, and it’s a chance to meet up with my friends and have a laugh.’
“We always have so much fun at St Gerard’s, and the food is amazing as always.”
Looking ahead, our Progress Activities Co-ordinator, Danni, has received requests for trips to Bury Market, Liverpool Art Gallery, and Blackpool illuminations.
There have also been more requests for afternoon teas, games afternoons, and more bacon butty mornings, , fishing trips and for another multi-culteral events, so there is plenty for our Activities Coordinator Role to take forward. And whilst Danni is about to go off on maternity leave shortly, we are pleased to announce that Sue Broster (pictured below) will be taking over the role whilst Danni is away. I’m sure you will all give her a warm welcome.
We will be starting yoga and pamper sessions such as nails and massage shortly, so keep your eyes peeled for them!
If anyone is interested in coming to any of these events or finding out more about our regular activities, such as chair exercises at Lowerhouse community centre and Charleston Court, and our fishing club, please contact Sue on 07811 351787.
