Last year Chaseley received a generous grant of £10,000 from The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity to support our residents and help combat loneliness and social isolation through increased levels of participation, to enable them to remain independent for as long as possible and to promote health and well-being.
Then came the Covid-19 pandemic which forced Chaseley into lockdown some 6 months ago, with the potential to undo some of the work this grant had helped us to achieve. However, the Chaseley staff team, the residents, their loved ones and also our external partners all really come together to ensure that our residents continued to receive the best care possible throughout the pandemic.
Everyone adapted their working practices and their living life practices in a way that maybe no one could have predicted, but everyone did it in such a way that they should all be proud of themselves. It hasn’t been an easy 6 months, especially with Government guidelines sometimes changing on a daily basis and being separated even more than normal from loved ones, but Team Chaseley has done so in a formidable way. The Chaseley community has thrived were maybe others have not so and that is evident in our residents.
Thank you to everyone that has supported Team Chaseley these last 6 months and thank you to the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity for the grant that helped to ensure we continued to deliver fun and engaging activities that increased socialising within the home and created a healthy and safe Chaseley Community.
