Within The Community Hub we addressed the issue of social isolation and loneliness that was an impact of COVID 19 in the form of Chatter Matters.
Our aim is to provide a homely setting for our community patients to meet with each other social for a couple of hours a week.
The format is patient led and it builds on fun and friendship. It takes place every Tues from 11am -1pm and we aim to improve well-being, provide socialisation/companionship, reduce isolation and distract from symptoms such as anxiety and fatigue, whilst, most importantly having great fun.
As always we are support by loyal volunteers who add their own qualities to the day.
“It’s the highlight of my week”
“I think about how much I’ve laughed here, it exceeds everything I thought it could be”
“You have preconceived ideas about the hospice and that’s not what you get, it’s full of laughter”
