Leg Clubs and coronavirus: keeping a community feel in times of physical distancing

Leg Clubs and coronavirus: keeping a community feel in times of physical distancing
Comment

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has challenged everyone’s day-to-day lives. The social distancing measures imposed by the government back in March required people in certain risk categories, such as the over 70s, to self-isolate for weeks. This inevitably has had a huge effect on many, as social relationships are vital for their wellbeing and quality of life. Here, Dr Anna Galazka, postdoctoral research consultant, Welsh Wound Innovation Centre in collaboration with Cardiff Business School, Carole Brooke, chair of Nailsea District Leg Club, retired practice manager and Demelza Spencer-Veale, lead nurse, Weymouth Leg Clubs, Two Harbours Healthcare, look at how some Leg Clubs have helped to maintain a community spirit and enable their members to continue to interact.
