Winnie's 100th birthday do

This new Housing LIN guest blog by Dasos Christou, executive director (customer relations) at Silva Homes, a Bracknell based housing association, explores how the organisation has supported their customers in independent living to remain independent during the first two lockdowns.

In particular, it highlights the ways in which they help address overcome rising loneliness and isolation and the impact on residents’ wellbeing to alleviate pressure on local health and social care services. For example, celebrating resident Winnie’s 100th birthday.
