Wellbeing & Social Activity Centres
Our three wellbeing and social activity centres located in Killingworth, North Shields and Wallsend provide a varied programme of weekly activities. They offer stimulation, light exercise, social activities and so much more. Our customers form new friendships and maintain vital skills in a relaxed, informal but safe environment.
Betty Crosier is 81 years of age and attends Rowan Croft Wellbeing and Social Activity Centre on Tuesday and Thursday of each week. Betty’s daughter Michelle wrote to EveryDay recently.
“Firstly we would like to express how much we appreciate everything you do for our Mother. We have noticed a huge difference.
Mum took some encouragement to attend the centre after a change in management but we continued to encourage her to attend. We thought it would be good for her mental health to get away from her own four walls and interact with people her own age and in a similar situation to her own.
We’ve seen an instant improvement in Mum’s demeanour as she seems so much happier day to day, as well as shattered both physically and mentally at the end of each day.
You and your team have transformed her mental wellbeing which is why we increased the visits to twice each week. Mum now has structure to those days and looks forward to her visits (which was not the case previously).
Betty’s Busy Schedule
As you know Tuesdays are her bath days with lunch and an activity/games afterwards. Thursdays consist of activities/games and entertainment as well as lunch. When Mum returns home (between yawns) she is full of what she has been up to and it is great to hear her laugh.
The different activities that you and your team provide are exceptional. I know what activities Mum has taken part in, or enjoyed watching others take part in, a range of activities-she has loved the singing and playing of instruments, the singers you get in to entertain them, baking cakes, knitting, crocheting, arts and crafts, films to name but a few.
Please keep up the great work and if we can assist with anything please do get in touch.
