The wider community involvement is so important to us.
Communities play an important role in every aspect of our lives. We have communities in our friends, families, employment, and our neighbourhood’s. We find community in the sports teams we support, or the artists we enjoy, even the food that we like. Having a sense of community unites us in something greater than ourselves. It gives us opportunities to connect with people, to reach for our goals, and makes us feel safe and secure.
It is important for every person to have a sense of community. In an age where technology both connects and separates us, a sense of belonging can greatly benefit our wellbeing and increase our contentment in day-to-day life. As we get older, it can sometimes get harder to connect with the people around us. But, that connection will ultimately ease the stress and feelings of loneliness. Going beyond the home’s boundaries can help to avoid introversion, and also opens the doors to the world for those with limited mobility.
Atkinsons Homes have always sought to support the community in whatever way we can. We continuously encourage as much involvement in the community as possible from our residents, staff, and love ones. Over the years, we have built relationships with other local health and charitable organisations in the community. There are numerous projects we have been delighted to support. we will continue to do so simply because they are important parts of community and village life. We’d like to highlight the wonderful community support we receive from our local church, St. Michaels Church, Stroke club and our fantastic community day centre, Sandhurst.
