A happy new year from The Wednesday Group

by | 24 January 2021 | Retford, Support Group, Worksop

A very happy new year to all members and friends of the Wednesday Group. The group’s organisers are hoping that this year will be much happier than last with all its restrictions. They’d barely got their year’s programme started when they had to close for the pandemic, so for over nine months of last year they have only been able to keep in touch by phone and email and a small number of summer meetings in the garden.
It’s been a very tough year for some of the group’s members, especially those in care homes where visiting has been restricted or banned altogether. They are really hoping that this year they shall be able to make contact with friends again and get their lives back together. We are social animals and becoming isolated can make us feel anxious, stressed and take away our motivation. Happily, there are some promising signs on the horizon.
If you care for someone with dementia or you yourself have a diagnosis, you may find help through the Wednesday Group or the Carers’ Group. For more information about either group contact Jan on 01777 709974.
