Morris Care has ‘Time for a Cuppa’
Tea and cake went down a treat at a Shropshire nursing home’s fun charity tea party.
Residents, staff, family and friends joined in the ‘Time for a Cuppa’ initiative for Dementia UK at Oldbury Grange Nursing Home in Bridgnorth. All six of Morris Care’s Nursing Homes to are set to host an event to raise funds for Admiral Nurses.
The cause resonates with Morris Care as it plans to become the first private care provider in Shropshire and Telford to appoint a specialist Admiral Nurse to support people living with dementia.
Alison Hearle, Dementia and Social Life Lead at Morris Care, said: “We love getting out the china cups and hosting tea parties to engage residents and bring people together. When the occasion also helps to raise awareness for dementia care it makes them more special as it is a cause close to our hearts.
“We know the value of developing specialist services for people living with dementia because it gives real benefits. We provide compassionate care in our homes so people can live the best life possible.”
Dementia UK’s annual ‘Time for a Cuppa’ runs from March 1 to 8 when supporters share their favourite bakes to make a difference to the lives of families facing dementia. This year is the tenth anniversary of the scheme which has raised more than £760,000 to fund 30 new Admiral Nurses.
Shrewsbury-based Morris Care has been providing quality care for nearly 30 years and is proud to be part of Morris & Company, a fifth-generation, family-run business celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.Back to news
