Clients Discuss Their Return After Covid Restrictions

Posted on the 23rd August 2021

We know many people have anxieties around  returning to contact with others now national covid restrictions have been lifted. We want to relieve those concerns by sharing a video of Pure clients speaking about their own experiences – and how much better they feel now they are back!

See their Zoom call discussions with our Community Engagement Officer, Emily Smith.  They discuss topics that include:

  • how they felt during isolation
  • support received from Pure staff to ease their return
  • their score out of 10 on how they feel now!

This video was made as restrictions were beginning to ease. We hope their experiences will allay anxieties of others. Take a look.

Socialising and Wellbeing

How touching that friends were cited so often as the things clients missed most – plus Pure staff! We missed them too.

People are social animals. Even if at times we don’t particularly feel like it, mixing with others is good for our wellbeing. We have been in enforced isolation for so long and it is great to see clients so happy to be back.

However, many people must still shield. Our monthly programme of fun Connect and Unite get-togethers on Zoom helps bring people together. It is free and available for all. Click the link for all the info.

Our Health and Wellbeing Video Series

This video is the first in a series presenting important health and wellbeing information in an accessible way for people with a learning difficulty or autism.

Some will feature Pure clients. Others will be made by health professionals. The wide range of topics will include matters such as moving home and more sensitive subjects. Some of these, such as the importance of testicular health checks, are sometimes difficult to talk about. The videos offer an opening to these discussions for parents, carers and health professionals.
