As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, it’s important to consider the mental health of all age groups.
According to the Mental Health Foundation, one in five older people living in the community experience depression or poor mental health.
For older generations, being an active member of a community has been proven to boost mental health.
As an organisation we recognise the importance of the communal areas within our extra care housing schemes and are working within the government guidelines to actively get small Covid secure social events within our restaurants in an attempt to ease social isolation and loneliness.
Residents across all of our schemes can request a welfare call from our support team if they feel they need it or if we go into a more restricted lockdown measures again.
