John Lewis Afternoon Tea

David Moore, Managing Director of Home Instead commented: “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with John Lewis on the Afternoon Tea event. It has not only brought together staff, CAREGivers and most importantly Clients, but also friends and family members from the community. To see people of all ages enjoying a glass of prosecco along with the lovely afternoon tea provided by John Lewis, and followed by a game of bingo was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon. I hope we can work together again with the John Lewis team to arrange more events like this as it brought so much joy to so many people.”

The average retirement age of the 1,000 retirees polled was found to be 62, yet the average respondent said they would have happily continued working for another seven years. Following these results, Home Instead has launched a campaign encouraging people to ’UnRetire’ if they still feel they have more to give to a workplace.
