Living in Harmony - Case studies 


Case Study: Seated Exercises :

Mrs Khan (Not real name) 72-year-old came with the support worker from one of the charities for LIH seated exercise classes. She was quite depressed and felt lonely at home and would like to mingle with people. She lives with her family and unable to go out alone due to lack of confidence.

She heard about the services in Slough like navigator, wellbeing etc but no one contacted or referred her to any of the community groups and she does not know how to contact them. While talking to the support worker she told Mrs Khan that she will take her to LIH one day for the seated exercise classes. She thought there will be a lot of people and she was surprised seeing only few people. We had a lot of time talking to her and knowing her. She enjoyed the company of other ladies. I told her that I do not believe in getting more people and the quality of service is very important for me. She enjoyed the gentle exercises and we went to the café for a cup of tea afterwards. Mrs Kahan enjoyed the day. In few weeks’ time she made friends and she enquired about one of the other group near her house. I told her about the exercise classes which they run, and she will be able to join. She visited the group and enjoyed there. The next week when she came she told us all about the other group and the exercises. She thoroughly enjoyed.

Mrs Khan now enjoys both these groups and feel happier than before. She told us that she is not feeling isolated any more. She made friends with many ladies from both groups and she is enjoying the exercise classes. Mrs. Khan feels healthier, and happy. She gained more confidence and travel alone in the bus.

Moral of the story and the lesson learned: Take the first step then more steps will follow means take the first step to meet some one or group then one can meet many groups and people. Thus, prevent isolation and loneliness and have a happy healthy life. You are not alone.
