It’s good to talk

We all need to reach out and have a good chat sometimes. Talking is great therapy, and meeting new people and making connections in your community is vital.

But it can be hard to take the leap and get out there to start the conversation. Well, we have the solution for you! Our three new groups will give you the chance to meet new people and make new friends. All the groups will meet at 3 Scalford Drive.

The first group is ideal if you are feeling a bit isolated. Maybe the children are back at school and you are at a loose end, or you have just moved to the area and would like to meet new people. Whatever your reason pop along to the Hub on every second Thursday of the month (starting 10 October) 1pm to 2pm.

Our second group is specifically for people over the age of 50 who are looking for people with similar interests for a chat over a cuppa. This group will run on the first Thursday of the month (starting 3 October) 1pm – 2pm.

The third group is for anyone who has been having mental health problems. You can meet up and share your experiences in a supportive environment. This group will meet from 1-2 pm on every third Friday in the month (starting 20 September).

Remember, if you need counselling or one to one support, Insight Healthcare run sessions at our Health and Wellbeing Hub in Welland. You can get free access to a mental health support, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). You can refer yourself, or be referred by a healthcare professional, and waiting times can be much shorter than getting help through your GP.

To find out more about our support groups and counselling service, call us on 01733 396404.

Resident Involvement

We love to hear from you and to get your feedback on our services and policies.

Becoming an involved resident with CKH is a great way to have your say on our services and make a real difference to your community. There are lots of different ways to get involved, and there is sure to be one that fits in with your life. You’ll be part of a great team of people and you’ll find the whole experience hugely rewarding.

From our Residents Board to our virtual network, there is something for everyone. You can receive support and training to help you to get the most out of being involved, and you’ll learn some great skills that can help you in the workplace.

If you would like to find out more about getting involved, call us today on 01733 396404 to chat through the options open you, and what route to involvement would suit you best.

Join us for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning!

We’re joining fundraisers across the UK to take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support. Pop in to Customer Central on Friday 27 September to join us for a cuppa and a slice of cake.

According to Macmillan, more than 2.5 million people in the UK are living with cancer and that number is growing by 3% every year. Macmillan Cancer Support are there for anyone dealing with the impact of cancer, whether you’re living with a diagnosis or are supporting a friend through theirs. Visit their website for more information www.macmillan.org.uk.

Don’t forget that CKH Care can support you through a cancer experience too. With our LifeLine personal alarms, help is on hand day or night if you need it. If you need a little more support, our Care team can visit you at home to help with anything from doing the weekly shop to delivering personal care.

Talk to a member of the team at Customer Central or call us on 01733 396439 to find out more about how we can support you.

Friday 27 September

9am – 5pm

We’ll let you know how much we raise in the next edition of Keylines!
