An Age UK day centre, in Huntingdon, has reopened after lockdown restrictions and is operating with social distancing rules in place.
Staff at the centre, in Ambury Road, continued to offer support during the lockdown period and carried out welfare checks and d delivered masks and newsletters, as well as visiting and delivering supplies to older people in the community.
Age UK day centres support people so they can continue to live at home longer, by combating loneliness and social isolation.
On March 23, the day centres were suspended, following Government advice and have now finally re-opened.
Staff have adapted the group’s activities and crafts to ensure social distancing rules are adhered to, without compromising the members’ enjoyment.
They offer chair-based exercises, quizzes, bingo, art and crafts and a hot meal is offered at lunchtime and refreshments are served throughout the day.
