Sherrell House Care Home recently took part in a ‘Global Tea Party’. This is a national event which takes place as part of Nutrition and Hydration Week. This event is celebrated across the country to promote improvements and raise awareness of the importance of nutrition and hydration across areas of health and social care. The staff organised a wonderful afternoon tea, which consisted of scones with jam and clotted cream, finger sandwiches, pastries and profiteroles. They had a selection of teas on offer, as well as sparkling babycham, prosecco and wine.
The group were joined by entertainer Smokey Joe, who provided an afternoon of fun and laughter. Residents and staff sang along to the 50’s and 60’s hits of Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard and Frank Sinatra. Everyone had fun, clapping their hands and waving their arms to the music, some even got up to dance! After the evening residents and their families agreed that “this was a lovely idea” and that they all had a nice afternoon. Resident Nina said she enjoyed the afternoon with her family and friend Aida.
