Reconnecting Maureen to her community

Maureen has faced a challenging few years, and after a stay at Modbury Hospital last year was referred to ECH Living Well Consultant Jenny, who links people with an activity that helps improve wellbeing and their physical and mental health.

Knowing Maureen loved cooking in the past, Jenny found a baking group nearby at the Wandana Community Centre.

“I did enjoy it. It’s a different atmosphere when you get there. I’m thankful for Jenny’s help and encouraging me to take part” says Maureen.

Maureen’s sister, Diana, who also cares for her, loved the fact she was socialising with others again. “She has really enjoyed it, and slowly she has felt a bit more confident to be involved and communicate with people,” Diana says.
