Here at Crouched Friars Residential Home, we are delighted to announce we have recently joined The Wednesday Wave campaign which aims to unite the community and encourages us to stay connected during the second lockdown due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Only a few months ago, we were clapping for our care worker heroes, now we are contributing to The Wednesday Wave to counter loneliness among care home residents or those feeling isolated in the pandemic.
From 3pm on Wednesdays, from 14th October until 16th December 2020, anyone and everyone is encouraged to join in and wave wherever they see The Wednesday Wave poster or a hand drawing displayed.
More than 500,000 vulnerable people are unable to leave their homes because of the pandemic, and it is having an effect on many people’s mental health.
Paulina Eagle, home manager at Crouched Friars, said: “We can’t thank our community enough for their support during this difficult time. Everyone’s gifts and letters of support has really lifted resident’s spirits over the last few months, especially as they can’t go out themselves.”
“Initiatives such as The Wednesday Wave helps to spread some much needed positivity and lets those that are isolating know that they’re not alone.
“The impact that a friendly wave can have on loneliness is huge, and those who are isolating must not be forgotten.”
