‘Tis the season to be together – Windsor care home opens its doors for
Snow is falling, children are playing – and a Windsor care home is opening its doors to help combat loneliness in the community this festive season.
On Friday 8th December, Friday 15th December, and Friday 22nd December, from 2.30pm-4.40pm,
Care UK’s Queen’s Court, on Dedworth Road, is helping older members of the community to get into the festive spirit by inviting them to join residents and team members for a series of Christmas parties.
Visitors to the home will be able to share their favourite memories and traditions of Christmas while making new friends and tucking into festive treats and drinks while listening to classic Christmas tunes.
Studies have shown that almost 1.5 million older people feel lonelier at Christmas than any other time of year*. To help tackle loneliness, Care UK has launched its Care to Share initiative, designed to support older people through the festive season.
More than 100 Care UK homes nationwide will be taking part to give older members of the community a safe and sociable space where they can enjoy some festive fun and good company – whether it’s singing along to Christmas carols or watching a Christmas movie with a mince pie.
Ruth Sohail, Home Manager at Queen’s Court, said: “Here at Queen’s Court, we’re passionate about playing an active role in our community, so we’re delighted so be opening our doors for our Christmas parties.
“We know December can be a difficult month for many, so this is a wonderful chance to bring people together to get into the Christmas spirit and a great opportunity for everyone to build new friendships – as well as reminisce over fond festive memories.
“We’d like to invite our older neighbours to book their place at our special events – they are certainly events yule not want to miss!”
