The Wellbeing Committee
initially joined the Wellbeing Committee because I was interested in helping others around me. I’ve been involved now for about two years. The idea behind the group is to maximise access to services for the residents and to help them to make the most of their health and wellbeing. We’re all volunteers, of course. There’s a very holistic approach to what we do. We put on talks from various organisations on things like diabetes, heart health and Alzheimer’s. We have a list of drivers who can take people to their appointments, ladies who do sewing jobs, a gentleman who does carpentry, and even people who can help residents with their computers. We send cards to people if they’re ever sick or in hospital and we’re also there as general support. When new people move in, I’ll give them a call to welcome them.Read more
