Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake visited Oaks Way Community Centre in Carshalton in order to better understand the challenges of sustaining independence and a good quality of life for elderly residents within his constituency. Oaks Way Centre provides a variety of care which aims to keep senior citizens active and social in their later life.
Tom’s visit was during the ‘Potted History’ project at the centre. The series of eight activities across the month looked to engage clients of the Oaks Way Centre in activities centred around gardening and nature. Changing activities regularly is just one example of how the Oaks Way keeps their elderly clientele interested and excited about coming to the centre.
