Our EveryDay Wellbeing Centres located across North Tyneside provide a variety of activities aimed at those aged over 50. They offer exercise, socialising activities and much more.
Jess is a regular visitor at our Linksill Wellbeing Centre, where we host a programme aimed specifically at those living with Dementia. Her daughter, Judith, recently wrote to EveryDay on their experiences.
“I just wanted to thank you to EveryDay Care and Age UK North Tyneside for sending Susan to us over the last few months, to say she has been brilliant is putting it lightly. I seriously do not think mum would be back at Linskill Park now without her”.
Mum came back to us
“Susan McGarrity encouraged her, engaged her in different activities to stimulate her mind and got her walking again. She was so kind and thoughtful and day by day mum came back to us. I really am so grateful to her”.
With our Centres now open with additional measures in place, visits could include activities such as:
- Cognitive stimulation therapy sessions
- Hairdressing, podiatry and assisted bathing
- Exercise ‘snacking’
- Socialising events
Our exercise ‘snacking’ sessions come as a result of a partnership with SportWorks. They include short periods of exercise which aim to maintain mobility and balance. Therefore, reducing the risk of falls at home and improving general fitness and confidence.
Care at Home
EveryDay also provides a Care at Home service which offers help with things as little as getting ready for the day, to supporting with medication and conditions such as Dementia.
Joanne, the Community Wellbeing Officer at North Tyneside Council, also commented on our services.
“I have some very challenging clients with complex needs and she Michelle Clements (EveryDay Wellbeing Centre Manager) has been amazing supporting them during the lockdown.”
“I know clients have appreciated the support she has put in place help for some very vulnerable people who are under extreme stress every day without a pandemic”.
