Maureen:We wanted to include the hospital patients in the community so this was a fantastic way to do it.
Eric:Well it’s been a great boost for our patients. They talk about it for a good while afterwards. It’s very important to get them outdoors too.
The Importance Of Community
Maureen-As humans, we’re social animals. I have no children. So it’s wonderful to to get the opportunity to be involved with families & children and generally to feel as if you have connections.
Bart: It’s nice to pop out cook some food, have a hotdog or have a glass of wine with your neighbours. And just sit down and have a chat face to face. It’s the connection that sometimes you miss in today’s age.
Eric: Cooperation with the neighbours is a big one.
Bart: It’s great to get a variety of people to come. You get young and old , people who have left. It makes it a great experience because people bring different types of food or drink. That also helps .. is to have a good contribution of people.
