Home Instead Senior Care in Sutton Coldfield celebrated Older Peoples day 2016 by organising a tea dance at St James Church Centre Mere Green on 30th September.
Franchise Owner Sally Clough said " Our community is filled with older adults that are isolated and lonely. I wanted to organise an event that would celebrate Older peoples day and give seniors an opportunity to come together, meet new friends and provide some companionship. We have been circulating leaflets advertising the occasion for several weeks I was thrilled to see that so many of the communities senior citizens enjoyed the afternoon. It was fantastic to see them dancing to the old time music today."
A break in the middle of the two hour occasion meant that Ava LaBelle, a Caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care could lead the singing of well known songs while cups of tea and lots of cake was served.
Sally Clough went on to say, " the event has been a great success, the feedback on the day was that they wanted us to organise more of these events which of course we will be delighted to do"
Home Instead organised this event to celebrate Older Peoples Day and the proceeds of the tea dance have been sent to The Bring Joy Foundation a charity that has been set up to bring the fun and joy back into ageing.
