This week CM2M was able to resume its 1-2-1 support service for Men 55+. This has come as a great relief to us, but more for the Men themselves. We had been in regular contact and it’s quite evident that they needed to get out of the house.
Fully following Department for Health & Social Care COVID-19 secure guidelines and rules, one of our Buddies took a client to a Garden Centre. This was a special place for the older man as he used to go with his wife there, he was able to purchase something for his garden and get a nice hot chocolate (good old British summer weather!). A lovely drive out and one comment stood out, as the buddy was driving the client said “it’s nice to see some trees”. I’m sure you can imagine the impact of such a statement. Our Buddies provide a much needed service.
We are ready to support more Men 55+ to get similar experiences, so please contact us so they are not staring at the same four walls every day.
