Guild Care's Creating Connections service continues to transform lives by promoting social connections and reducing isolation among older adults. George, a 73-year-old resident of Worthing, shares his uplifting experience since joining the service about a year ago.

George, who had been struggling with boredom and health issues, found new purpose through Creating Connections. "I look forward to getting up in the mornings now," George says. He enjoys the friendly staff, engaging in table tennis, and participating in Monday's creative sessions which remind him of his happy school days.

His social worker recommended Creating Connections, and George has since become a regular attendee, coming three times a week. The service has provided him with a sense of belonging and companionship, as he chats with fellow Brighton and West Ham football fans. George praises the staff for their constant friendliness and support, stating, "The staff are always helpful, always smiling."

Creating Connections, dedicated to promoting independence among those over 65, offers one-to-one befriending and weekly face-to-face group activities. From seated exercise classes and bingo to live music, dancing, and the beloved Sunday lunch club, the service promotes a vibrant and inclusive community, giving older adults a chance to socialise and stay active.
