“We have been so impressed with Thomas. I think this change has been down to a mixture of Thomas adapting to the new routines over time, as well as us learning quickly how to make Zoom accessible for all our members. For instance, we make sure everyone has their turn to speak, and we have reworked our timetable to make sure we have events available for all members, no matter their home schedules. We also incorporate seated exercise routines so everyone can join in regardless of their mobility.
“Thomas has grown so much in confidence and it is wonderful to see. That is what is so powerful about Love4Life, knowing that we are still connecting people during the pandemic, and we are still making an impact on people like Thomas. For many of our members, the events they have joined might be the first time they have spoken to someone all day.”
Thomas said: “There’s lots of things I like about Love4Life, I like the games night and I like eating out at Harvester – it’s my favourite.
Thomas probably speaks for us all when he says:
“Love4Life on Zoom is fun but it isn’t the same. I will be really happy when I can see everyone in person again.”
