Our Living Well programme offers free, enjoyable activities and therapeutic sessions to enhance comfort, health and happiness among our patients and their loved ones. From arts and craft to exercise and relaxation, these short sessions are constantly reviewed and expanded to give you, your family and carers even more opportunity to live well.

Unfortunately because of coronavirus we are unable to run our full Living Well programme. However we are delighted to be able to bring you some sessions using the online platform, Zoom.  All the sessions can be booked by emailing the Living Well Co-ordinator, Kelly Moore on Kelly.moore@hokh.co.uk or by calling 01622 792200 ext 258.

We have also set up a peer-to-peer support group on Facebook which is open to all our patients and their carers.  This closed group will enable you to connect and support each other.  You can ask our Family Support Team for the details on 01622 792200 ext 260 or email fst@hokh.co.uk, or request to join the group on Facebook using this link.

Online Living Well Programme

Monday

We are running a weekly Pilates session with Victoria every Monday at 1:00pm.  This is a 30 minute session combining gentle Pilates with stretching and breathing. Please wear comfortable clothing and footwear and please ensure you drink plenty of water. 

Tuesday

From Tuesday 9 June 10:30am - 12:00pm we will be running a weekly Knit & Natter.

All you need is a needle and some wool or material, depending on what you want to make - be that knitting, crochet or stitch work. You could always use old bedding or anything around the house that you don't want anymore.

Knit & Natter is open to both beginners and those already familiar with a needle.

Wednesday

If you’ve missed our ukulele group, you will be happy to know that you can take part in our online group during a two hour session from 2:00pm – 4:00pm every Wednesday.  These are fun-filled sessions of singing your favourite songs while learning to play the ukulele. The sessions are for beginners as well as confident players and, because they are run through Zoom, you will need your own ukulele.

Thursday

Explore your creative side and join our new online arts and craft session every Thursday from 10:00am – 12:00pm.  These sessions are also run through Zoom and all you need is some paper and pencils or paints. 

For more information or to book a session please contact our Living Well Co-ordinator, Kelly Moore, on Kelly.moore@hokh.co.uk or by calling 01622 792200 ext 258.
