Summary of report content

Healthwatch Bristol worked with golden agers club members magnifying the voice of the participants of Black and Ethnic Minority Group in Easton. Healthwatch Bristol held the focus groups and spoke to service users in a one-to-one talk which enabled people the freedom to speak confidentially about what they do to support their own, or the person they are looking after, mental health needs. In total 13 people participated in the survey, two of whom were caring and supporting another family member. They spoke about their emotional needs and those of the people they were caring for. The golden agers report expresses the importance of community groups, people socialising and overcoming isolation through attending local services and how people enjoyed participating in regular gentle exercise and activities. Healthwatch Bristol found out how, by attending community and religious groups, people aided their emotional needs, with strong evidence supporting this theory.
