The Adam Practice - Leg Club
WHEN: Every Thursday between 9am - 12pm
WHERE: The Royal British Legion, Upton
The Best Foot Forward Leg Club in Poole, Dorset, opened in October 2015. Since then it has become a ‘hub’ of activity for the Local Community, providing evidenced-based, effective clinical care and companionship for many people.
When the Leg Club first opened there were many patients of The Adam Practice with long term, hard to heal lower leg ulcers and related problems. Prior to attending the Leg Club, their only choice was to attend their local surgery for their treatment, or be treated in their own homes by the District Nurse Team if they had mobility problems. This often lead to isolation and loneliness, leaving patients with a feeling of poor self esteem and low mood.
With joint support from both the Leg Club Nursing and Volunteer teams, over time such members have been able to ‘reignite’ their self esteem, take control of their own care within the encouraging environment.
