Our impact within
We are lucky to meet so many amazing people from Southampton every day and love learning more about people’s lives and interests.
Our Southampton Living Well hubs (transformed from the previous adult day care centres) offer the opportunity to get to know people from the local community and make new friends.
We are proud to help people enjoy life to the fullest and see the direct impact our support is making to their lives. Whether it’s helping someone become more mobile, or giving a much loved family member a place to go so their loved ones can have a break, it all makes a difference.
Have a quick look at some stories below to see how we have made a difference:VISIT A HUB NEAR YOU
Arthur attends Southampton Living Well Oak Lodge in Southampton. He speaks very highly of Martyn and the team at Oak Lodge:
“Before I came to Oak Lodge I was not very sociable. Martyn’s bought me out of my shell and has got me to do things I never thought I was capable of doing. I go to Oak Lodge three times a week now and it’s great company. He’s been able to do more for me than the NHS were able to do. I recommend anyone to come to Oak Lodge.”
Don’t worry if you think it might be difficult for you to do these activities. We can come and visit you to discuss how we can help. We have staff trained in care and support work who can accompany you should you need it.GET IN TOUCH TODAY
Lesley attends our Southampton Living Well Freemantle hub. Our team talked to Lesley and learnt that she had previously suffered a stroke and was unable to walk from the minibus to the hub unaided. The team worked with Lesley and identified that she really enjoyed swimming. They booked a pool and took her for some swimming sessions.
As the weeks progressed Lesley’s mobility began to improve and she now rarely uses her wheelchair, thereby increasing her independence and confidence.
