Home Instead Sheffield launch 2nd edition of WOW guide!
Home Instead Sheffield launch 2nd edition of WOW guide!

After the great success and fantastic feedback from our first ‘WOW’ guide, Home Instead Sheffield have launched their second edition!

Our first guide was launched back in November 2014 and it has been brilliant in getting socially isolated people from communities within Sheffield involved in more activities. Not only has our guide helped adults across Sheffield, but it has helped encourage some of our clients, who were once quite shy, to come out of their shells.

Our guide has featured across many different media channels such as; Sheffield Star, Look Local and Sheffield Live TV as we continue to raise awareness of the vast range of activities that are available to people across Sheffield.

Here are just a few quotes about our guide:

“This is a fabulous directory and we have handed quite a few out in our centre already.  I have also had an enquiry regarding our Dementia Group from someone using the directory.”

Louise – Parson Cross Forum.

“I think it is a wonderful idea to help people access activities and information. I wish that there had been similar information available 30 years ago when my mother was suffering with early onset dementia” -Mrs S.

 “We can always use these, they’re a great little directory.  We will take these to all our Sheffield Dementia Cafes and give out at groups etc. “

Anna Machalica Services Manager  Alzheimer’s Society

“I think the directory is great, gives people a really simple to understand oversight of what's in the area for them.”

James Evans, Editor, Look Local

After all the brilliant feedback we received we decided to create a second edition and we are delighted to announce that we have launched our guide!

After a few layout and activity changes from the feedback given to us, we think the 2nd edition may be even better than the first and cannot wait to get it back out into the community, this time we have even more guides to give away with 3500 printed to spread across Sheffield.

If you would like a copy of our WOW guide or you run a regular activity which you would like to feature, do not hesitate to call us on 0114 246 9666 or email kathy.markwick@homeinstead.co.uk
