Young At Heart ULO Thornaby, Tuesday 28th March 2017
This afternoon at Young At Heart ULO in Thornaby our theme was physical games.
We started the session with hot drinks and the usual orientation exercises – chatting about good news and sharing some sad news too. Then I introduced the group to Rachel, the Welfare Benefits Advice Worker from Age UK.
Rachel can assist people in Stockton with claiming benefits, giving advice on housing costs, council tax, carers allowance, etc. She can also advise on challenging decisions, writing letters to government organisations, phone calls and appeals.
If you would like to be referred to Rachel, please get in touch with me.
Rachel spoke to both groups at Young At Heart ULO about the work that she can do over the course of the session.
Next, we spent some time playing the parachute game together, following the instructions and dancing along with the music. That was until the beach ball song, which always seems to get everyone excited.
After the parachute game, we discussed meaningful music in preparation for an upcoming music reminiscence session.
Next week we will be writing poems.
