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!
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 Lewes District.
With sponsorship from Home Instead Charities, Home Instead Lewes District and Uckfield are delighted to launch a new Companionship Café in Lewes at the Dorset Pub on Malling Street, every Wednesday 10am – 12pm.
Using funds provided by The Access Foundation, Home Instead Charities has been able to purchase devices such as laptops and iPads for older people to use at our companionship cafes so they can learn simple digital skills and become more tech savvy. With funding and equipment, we will be able to provide the community with a safe space for learning and socialising.
The Home Instead Charities Cafe in Lewes is supported by friendly volunteers from Home Instead Lewes District and Uckfield. Please get in touch if you would like to book a space at our upcoming Companionship Café!
