Self-care week was 15th-21st November, so naturally, we were out with gusto! Age Friendly Tameside organised an intergenerational event for Remembrance Day and Self-Care week on 15th October at Millbrook care home. This session involved the Youth Justice Service and residents of the care home exchanging letters of kindness, painted rocks and stories, ending with a yoga session led by local practitioner Claire Clayton. The residents commented on how the session had really brought joy to their day and were already looking forward to our next visit. One lady was so impressed with the yoga moves, she continued to do them after the session had finished. The rocks also brought a tear to their eye as they were so personal and emotional.

Age Friendly Tameside also organised the Wellness Event at 4C Community Centre on 16th November. This featured warm up sessions from Active Tameside, informative talks from Action Together and infection prevention, strength and balance exercises from our local NHS physio’s and the opportunity to have a health check from Be Well. It finished with a very calming and refreshing Tai Chi and meditation session from Age UK Tameside, all topped off with lovely refreshments courtesy of Eclectic Avenue café and fruit smoothies from our Nutrition and Hydration Champions! The event was well attended and feedback that they had learnt so much and appreciated the opportunity to talk with each of our professionals, have a personable health check or referral to social prescribers or health improvement specialist, as well as enjoying the interactive nature of the session.
