Companionship services in Hastings in the community
Companionship services for the elderly in Hastings
It saddens me to read the statistics about loneliness amongst our Senior Citizens and makes me passionate about promoting not just our Companionship Service but the local Community Groups working to provide activities and events that will enable people to come together and socialise.
One example of this was evident when I went along to The Isabel Blackman Centre on Thursday 28th September to support their Community Cake Sale. The cake and tea was appreciated, delicious and free, with cakes on sale to take home with you.
The organisers/staff/volunteers I spoke with were friendly and welcoming. The Country style singers ‘The Blue Bayou’ were just right for the occasion, with Rod working the stage and entertaining the visitors like a true professional, supported by carol who was charming and sung beautifully.
Mostly I enjoyed seeing the elderly visitors happy and participating. I look forward to returning, the event is held on the last Thursday of every month.
