Covid-19 Supports & Salsa Dancing

06.02.2020

We are making a difference in different ways…

At 91yrs, Gerry is still able to live independently at home with supports such as meal delivery, grocery shopping and befriending provided by Making Connections.

After weeks of lockdown, he felt weary. As part of our well being initiative we found out that ballroom dancing was his passion. He looked forward so much to this live performance that he even dressed up for the occasion.

He stood at the door and watched with delight as the music started and this colourful couple danced around his garden: waltzing, quickstep and foxtrot. “The steps are all coming back to me” he shouted and he would not let us leave until we promised to return again.
