The glad rags are on, the decorations up and the sweet treats baked to perfection as the residents and teams at Sanctuary Care’s homes across the country celebrate Time for a Cuppa.
From Alice in Wonderland themed events to fabulous frocks and fancy hair days, the teams and residents at Sanctuary Care’s homes have pulled out all the stops to raise as much money as possible.
Today in Birmingham, the team are dressed from top to toe in black and white for a Lyons Tea House themed tea party at Bartley Green Lodge Residential Care Home in Bartley Green.
On Saturday at Juniper House Residential Care Home in Worcester the bunting and fine crockery will be out for the home’s vintage themed tea party, taking place between 2pm and 4pm.
Visitors will also enjoy a tour of the home, which opened last year, including its new garden room.
Meanwhile at Ashley House Residential Care Home in Bordon and Bradwell Court Residential Care Home in Congleton, the teams and residents are dressing as the weird and wonderful from arguably one of the famous Lewis Carroll classics for their Alice in Wonderland-inspired events.
Lots of homes took advantage of it being St David’s Day on Tuesday (1 March), with an abundance of daffodil and spring themed events. At Hastings Residential Care Home in Malvern the home was filled with flowers for their tea party, held in honour of the Patron Saint of Wales. Meanwhile in Oxfordshire, the residents at Wantage Nursing Home lovingly created beautiful flowers out of crepe paper to decorate their home especially for the occasion.
In Kent, residents at Shaftesbury Court Residential Care Home have been decorating beautiful spring bonnets to wear for their seasonal event later this week.
With money being raised from donations in return for refreshments and mouth-watering cakes and sweet treats, the proceeds from the events will be used by Dementia UK to fund Admiral Nurses, specialist dementia nurses who provide care, advice and support to families living with dementia to help them to cope.
