Abicare’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party
On a hot Friday in July the sun was shining on Dorothy House Hospice in Bradford-on-Avon, who extended their hospitality in allowing Abi live-in (part of Abicare) to host their Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
With a vast array of teas, coffees and delicious cakes, and of course fabulous music to sing along to, this event gave some of Abicare’s homecare and live-in clients, and their carers, the opportunity to get out and about in the community and engage in social interaction. One of their clients even brought his daughter along with him!
Abicare hosted their first Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in April at Bowerhill Village Hall and two of their clients enjoyed it so much they attended the Tea Party at Dorothy House Hospice!
As well as providing home care and live-in care, the team at Abicare prides itself on being not just another care company- they participate in a number of charity events, and help to make a real difference within the community. They are currently taking part in a recycling scheme to raise funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, they continue to support The Trussell Trust, they twinned 6 toilets last year for Toilet Twinning, and this year their chosen charity for 2019 is Mind.
Abicare would like to thank Dorothy House Hospice for being so hospitable- it was lovely for clients and carers to meet their staff, and to have the opportunity to wander around the beautiful hospice grounds.
Events like this are so important in ensuring that senior citizens continue to engage with, and be a part of, the local community. This helps to alleviate isolation and helps with keeping the brain active.
A wonderful day was had by all and Abicare look forward to hosting similar events throughout the year, and everyone, young and old are welcome to attend!
Part of the charm of our beautiful town is its narrow winding lanes and pathways, which meander between the old weavers cottages on the hill...
