How did you feel about the event?
It was wonderful. We are all so pleased to be back with Action For Elders. And it is so lovely to be back together, meeting new people, having a chat and seeing how they’ve all coped with the pandemic. It’s all a matter of getting people out of their homes, because we’ve been locked down for two years.
How did you cope during lockdown?
It was hard for me because I’ve recently moved to a new property and I didn’t know anyone, but I coped alright. My son called and remained outside, I communicated with him through the window. Alex (Action For Elders Swansea group) called me regularly and also visited me, staying outside at a safe distance. These visits helped me cope.
Did you feel anxious about coming back out after lockdown?
No, not at all, it was absolutely fantastic to be here today. The only thing I did when we came out of lockdown was to go supermarket shopping. I had nowhere else to go until Alex phoned me and told me about this event in Swansea. It’s been a great day and I’ve met a lot of lovely new people. It’s lovely to be out mingling again.
