The last Thursday of each month 5.30-7.30pm sees our Carers’ High Tea collaboration event with Alzheimer Scotland at the Cafe Bar in An Lanntair.
We welcome Carers to book with Alzheimer Scotland in Bells Road. The sessions are free and a main meal, dessert and coffee/tea are provided.
The idea is to offer the opportunity to enjoy a meal and social occasion, supported by staff. This could also offer information about further support for Carers or it could simply be an opportunity to relax and enjoy an evening out together with your partner or a break for yourself.
Alzheimer Scotland pays for meals and our project pays for desserts and drinks. We both offer support from staff.
Last night, three couples came along. One lady commented that she’d had such a lovely time that she couldn’t believe it was so late and the taxi had arrived!
I learned a lot about ‘The Man That Never Was’, ‘Operation Minestrone’ and emigration to Australia, the £10 passage, last night. Plus there was a beautiful story about a family dog, an Irish Wolfhound, who broke out of the house every day to walk the boy home from school. Other conversations involved how David Beckham is looking good as an older man, beards and Lidos from the Art Deco period.
A good time had by all!
