We conducted a survey to find out from service users whether a recreational get-together activity would be of any therapeutic value to their health and social standing.
There was a resounding response to the benefits that may accrue and understandably, all elderly and the disabled service users needed a place to meet, as most of them are housebound and have no meaningful contact with the outside world.
In light of this positive research, Capital Homecare Ltd. would work in partnership with local authorities in establishing a luncheon club where the elderly, the young, and the disable can meet and socialise.
We have currently a Somali Luncheon Club that caters exclusively for members residing in Greenwich Borough.
