A CARE home in Stratford is putting the kettle on to support the local community.
Ambleside Care Home, on Evesham Road, will be opening its doors for its first dementia-friendly coffee morning on Thursday October 20.
The coffee mornings are set to run on the third Thursday of each month and are designed to provide a welcoming, safe place where carers, family members and older people can connect over shared experiences, make new friends and enjoy complimentary coffee and cakes.
The team at Ambleside will also be on hand to offer advice to people in the community caring for a loved one living with dementia and will be inviting guest speakers on a regular basis.
This month Parvinder Bahia, a solicitor from Davisons Law has been invited to provide expert guidance on Power of Attorney.
Julia Joy, Home Manager at Ambleside, said: “We are thrilled to be opening our doors to the community for the first of our monthly coffee mornings.
“In England alone, there are approximately 540,000 carers of people living with dementia. Here at Ambleside, we understand the challenges that family carers can face and we are on hand to help. By holding these events, we hope to support those caring for loved ones living with dementia, and we are committed to providing professional advice and guidance for all local people.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the community into the home for what promises to be an insightful morning of advice and support.”
The coffee morning on Thursday October 20 runs from 10am to 12 noon.
