It has been a very hard decision to make but we have decided to close Connect For Life for now following the Government announcement yesterday to help limit the spread of Covid 19 and to help keep our service users and carers safe and well.

 

As a team we will be keeping in touch with our carers and service users and support them from a distance but our weekly sessions and monthly Jigsaw group will not run until further notice.

Welcome to Connect For Life

Meet others : Build connections

What We Do

Connect for Life is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation located in the heart of Oswestry, Shropshire. 

We provide a day support service for older people, particularly those with memory loss or dementia where they can 'meet others and build connections'. 

We offer a wide variety of stimulating activities in a safe, welcoming, caring environment.

Our sessions are held every

Wednesday and Thursday

10.30am to 2.30pm.


Connect for Life strives to enhance the lives of those we come into contact with. Our sessions run in accordance with Christian principles, promoting mutual respect, acceptance and valuing individual contributions.

Purpose

Access to peer support

We provide an environment where people can offer support to one another whether it be as carers or people with life restricting health conditions

Friendships

Friendships can blossom, experiences can be shared.

Stimulating Activities

Providing a mixture of brain stimulating, relaxing and informative activities enabling people to increase their sense of well-being and sense of worth.
Activities which create laughter, stimulate memory, competitive spirit, team work and fun.

Decrease Isolation

One of our goals is to decrease social isolation by providing a place where people can meet others and build connections

Respite for Carers

We offer a safe place for their cared for to attend for a number of hours in a day allowing them some time for themselves

 We are aware that there are many older people in socially isolated situations, carers who are in need of a few hours respite and people being diagnosed with dementia or have concerns about their memory.

 

We are committed to providing a service which is welcoming, caring and stimulating with the aim of increasing people’s self esteem and their sense of well being.We will provide activities to stimulate the brain, opportunities for people to try new skills, talk about their situations and have fun.
