Home Instead Liverpool Central & North created a wonderful spectacle at Liverpool One shopping centre recently, by organising an ‘Over 55’s Flashmob’.
The event challenged the stereotypical view of the older generation as 200 ‘raving pensioners’ attracted hundreds of onlookers by making a song and dance about being part of the YouTube generation.
Having so many elderly clients with a real zest for life, Home Instead owner Andrew Erskine was keen to show the community just how much fun the older generation can have. With camera wielding onlookers recording the event, the YouTube clip of the Flashmob looks set to be a new internet phenomenon.
Andrew commented: “We feel so passionately about our clients and caregivers, we wanted to let the whole world see how fantastic and full of life older people are. There are all sorts of stereotypes about the older generation, but because we specialise in looking after the elderly in their own homes, we know just how fantastic they are. We wanted to make a song and dance about it!”
He continued: “The event was a great success and provided a fantastic opportunity for us to meet new people in the community. It just goes to show you are never too old to have a great time.”
