Our Day Services team started to create virtual groups when Coronavirus made it impossible for us to see groups of people face to face. We have since seen the benefit of using Zoom to support patients and carers.
Feedback from both patients and carers show just how powerful the groups can be:
Patient: "I find the companionship of similarly placed people very comforting."
Patient: "I know actual face to face meetings can't occur, but seeing each other on Zoom and being able to talk is such a relief."
Patient: "The virtual face to face was great for morale."
Carer: "I have found this course extremely helpful in improving my wellbeing."
Carer: "I really enjoyed the closeness of the group. The sharing of our feelings. The chance to allow our feelings out in a secure environment."
