The Age Connect Shop on Holton Road in Barry has served senior citizens and local people for many years serving refreshments and organising a number of activities including advice, support, IT skills, exercise classes and visits from groups like the Barry Stroke Club.
Vale AM Jane Hutt joined the Stroke Club session between 10 -12 noon on 2nd Friday of the months and met Stroke ambassador Hadyn Canter, Stroke survivors and carers to discuss their needs and experiences.
The Vale AM said,
“It is vital we address isolation and loneliness for people who have survived strokes often from an early age like Stroke Ambassador Hadyn Canter who spends time raising awareness about prevention and managing life as a stroke survivor. It clearly has a hugely beneficial impact on the wellbeing of the members attending the group at the Age Connect Shop in Barry.”
Barry Stroke Club meet at Age Connects from 10 – 12 on the first Thursday of the month.
