Cyrenians OPAL Update

Published: November 3, 2020

COVID-19 has meant that we cannot provide face to face services at this time so we have had to adapt and find ways to keep people engaged.

At present we are providing the following initiatives:

  • Telephone support on a weekly/fortnightly basis providing friendly chat, and a chance for us to check in on people
  • Weekly online video groups, hosted on Zoom, with activities such as sing-alongs, cooking demos, quizzes, and simply a time to chat as a group

                OPAL Kitchen – first Tuesday of every month from 2-3.00pm
                OPAL Zoom Room – Every Wednesday from 2.00-3.00pm
                Musical Memories – Every Thursday 2.00-3.00pm

  • Digital support to help older people connect online, whether to one of our Zoom groups or to chat with friends and family
  • ‘Mail Mates’ and ‘Blether Buddies’ – postal pen pal and phone-call networks among our clients, so they’re able to stay in touch with existing friends as well as make new ones
  • Monthly activity packs, containing quizzes, puzzles, poems illustrations and other forms of entertainment. 

Please call us on 01506 815 815​ for a chat on any of these new initiatives and to find out how to refer.
