Community Involvement

It's important to stay sociable as we age to avoid the serious impact of loneliness. Stay connected and have fun by joining a social group!

What's on where?

Our local communities offer a range of stimulating activities for older adults to enjoy, but it can be difficult to find the details all in one place. This inspired Home Instead to create a guide to ‘What’s on Where’ (WOW) – this Community Services & Wellbeing Guide.

We are also very conscious of our social responsibility. We work to help combat loneliness and social isolation, alongside other challenges that older people, their families, and carers face.

A diagnosis of dementia is life changing for all those affected, but we know it is possible to live well with the condition. Taking part in activities and being part of the local community can make a difference and we want to play our part in helping those affected to feel valued, engaged and supported.

So download our ‘What’s on Where’ guide by filling out the form to your right and find out what’s going on locally in Shoreham, Southwick, Hangleton & Portslade.

Tea and Something Lovely!

Home Instead Brighton, Hove and Shoreham have been holding Tea and Something Lovely events since September 2021, shortly after covid restrictions were lifted. We wanted to provide our elderly community with a free event which allowed those who joined to socialise and relax in a friendly environment again.

With each session, we provide tea, cake, entertainment and time to chat to others. We welcome people of all abilities.

We have had some wonderful entertainers in the past such as Movingsounds, Dementia Singing Experience (East Sussex) and Silver Strings band.

If you would like to join our upcoming event on Sunday 1st October which is a ‘Silver Sunday Special’, come down to Church of the Good Shepherd on Dyke Road from 2 – 4pm and enjoy a session with Movingsounds. Please wear something silver, a full outfit or sparkly accessory! We look forward to seeing you.

Contact us to book the next session.
