Growing Old with a Learning Disability (GOLD)
If you are over 45 years old and have a learning disability you may be interested in going to a new group that is being set up for people like you. The ‘Golden Friends Group’ is the chance for you to make new friends, have a chat and talk about things to people with the same interests and a variety of health issues.
For more information about when and where we meet please contact the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities.
In meetings this year we have talked about:
How to get a good nights sleep
Planning your visit to a GP
For example, in one of our meetings we talked about Staying Safe Online
We talked about using computers safely, how we use computers, tablets and mobile telephones to help us to keep in touch with our friends and look up information. We talked about what we could do to use computers safely and try and stop people that we do not know and trust from getting information about us.
