Stronger Together Bridgend tries to promote any activity/group aimed at creatively bringing together older adults and so here here are the groups we link in with so far in alphabetical order:
Ageing Well Bridgend
Useful information source to help older people maintain daily independence and feel connected in their local communities.
Provides a range of activities, classes and clubs to enrich the lives of older adults and their families. They nurture relationships between generations, keep people active and bring friends together, promoting a sense of wellbeing.
Maesteg Ukulele Club
If you like playing the ukulele or want to learn then link up with Shaun Keddy from Maesteg Ukulele Club. They meet up online and Shaun teaches beginner classes every Wednesday night at 7 pm online. Please contact him directly to find out more by either e-mailing him or phoning him (at a reasonable time please).
Men’s Sheds Cymru
A Man’s shed has, for generations, been a place for him to escape the stress and strains of life; a safe haven to gain much needed sanity; to be surrounded by his own, useful things; a place to think, to make things, to mend things, to invent and be at one with the world…..and men the world over have done this largely on their own.
As most Men’s Sheds are closed during this time they are trying to create a Virtual Shed, so why not join in?
Sound Memories Radio
Cheryl Beer is the Founder and Director of Sound Memories Dementia Friendly Radio Station.
The station is a dementia friendly station in that the content and sound levels of all their material is based on research with user groups to ensure that they are taking health implications into consideration with regard to sound, visuals, concentration time, longevity etc so that they are totally inclusive.
