What People Say
“This place has changed my life, I now have a path, I know where I am going now! Everyone is so nice here.”
“It makes me feel happy coming here. These are happy tears. I’m still accepted and welcomed even though D (husband) has passed away”
“It’s given me confidence, my social anxiety has improved. ReConnect has helped me to socialize as I don’t do that anywhere else.”
"I'm singing because I'm happy. I'm just so happy to be back here."
“I've really enjoyed making that today. It took me completely away from all my troubles”
"ReConnect is fantastic - exactly how a community organisation should be - a stronghold on the ground, involved in the community, and most importantly led by the heart."
“The time offers an opportunity for patients to socialise with each other which is precious to them and for staff to see patients enjoy this. The artist who takes the session is encouraging, patient and kind, and ensures the session demands nothing of the patients but in so doing allows patients to express themselves in a unique way. The session is peaceful and a refreshing break for patients from the clinical environment they are in otherwise. The group is a very much valued part of Stroke rehabilitation offered at the Vale for which the unit has been highly commended by the Community Hospital Association.”
