An array of free digital activities
Ageing Better Middlesbrough staff have been hosting lots of Zoom activities...
Over the last few months, our Community team have been very busy.
They have been hosting a wide variety of activities via Zoom, including vocal groups, history projects, bingo sessions, a virtual world tour, quizzes, armchair exercises and much, much more.
These events provide a space for members to meet up online, and staff are on hand to ensure the experience is fun and rewarding.
Regular attendee Stuart Hill said: “Joining Zoom couldn’t be simpler. I just went on the Play Store, downloaded the app and registered. Then the team sent me an email. I clicked on the link and just like that, I was online.
“During the bingo sessions I can see people’s faces and have a laugh too. I look forward to it every week.”
A lending library has also been developed to give people access to a handheld device, complete with data for those who don’t have internet access.
We hope more and more of our members will be open to trying out new technologies, not just to join in with our events, but also to learn how home shopping, booking GP appointments and ordering prescriptions can be done from the comfort of your own home.
If you would like to join in with our online events, just give us a call on 01642 061019 and we’ll talk you through the process. You can also call this number if you’d like to access our lending library.
