For this service I am greatly thankful.
The ability of my mum to access the SMRC is very important to her and her family and very beneficial for my mum as it allows her to socialise with other people of her age and not only gives her some exercise she wouldn’t normally get but most importantly it gives her mental stimulation through the interaction with other people. It gives her something to look forward to every week.
I think its an invaluable asset to the elderly community, without this activity she would have declined much more and earlier putting a heavier need for her to seek help from the public health system. It means everybody is benefitting equally as the elderly still greatly contribute to the community at large.
