Free Activity Books for Wrexham& Flintshire Residents
Home Instead Wrexham & Flintshire is offering free activity books to over-60s in the local area. The books have been designed with older people in mind and contain a range of quizzes, crosswords and general-knowledge based games to help fight boredom and keep the mind stimulated.
The booklets are free of charge and are produced by Home Instead to support older people who may be socially-isolated and lacking mental stimulation during the current lockdown.
Heather Collin, Community Engagement Lead, Home Instead Wrexham & Flintshire commented: ‘Due to coronavirus, older people have lost out on social interaction and the activities they once enjoyed, such as lunch clubs and day centres as well as visits from family and friends. The long-term effects of being at home are anxiety, loss of confidence and general withdrawal from life. Whilst we aim to combat this as part of our home care services, we are making these booklets available to all older people in the area to help them stay mentally active, despite the isolation and restrictions they may be experiencing.’
The books are available to individuals or in bulk to local community groups who are able to distribute to their members at home. To order the booklets please call Heather on 07757 538050 or email [email protected]
Supplies are limited and only available to people in the local area.
