Home Instead Halton celebrated its first birthday in style last week with a celebratory gathering at its offices in Frodsham. With strawberries and cream on offer and the Frodsham Manor House Primary School choir entertaining, the event was a great success.
Nearly 70 attendees enjoyed the festivities and fun. Guests included clients and caregivers from Home Instead, as well as key figures from the local community including a local pastor and members of Will to Work Workshop and Age Concern.
The Frodsham Manor House Primary School choir serenaded attendees with a wide-ranging set of songs including a medley from The Wizard of Oz, as well as the Queen classic “It’s a Kind of Magic.”
The group that sang along the loudest was Home Instead’s own senior social group TLC, which offers Tea Laughter and Company to the local community, courtesy of volunteers and staff from Home Instead.
Along with group leaders, regular attendees were present to demonstrate the sort of activities the group partakes in such as games and quizzes and of course to show off their vocal chords by joining in with the rousing sing-a-long.
Home Instead owner Neil Cook commented: “Our birthday party was fantastic and a great opportunity to get the community together to share in some food, fun and of course a good old sing song. In fact, all that singing must have been hungry work, as the strawberries and cream didn’t last very long. Thanks to our guests and to the talented choir, the event really was magical!”
Home Instead services include companionship services that can involve everything from escorting clients on visits or appointments to simple conversation and good company; home help covering all aspects of day-to-day housework, shopping, meal preparation and household duties; and personal care such as assistance with bathing, dressing, eating and medication prompts.
