My Home Life knows that many care homes are opening their doors to older people in the community by offering meals and entertainment over the Christmas period.
Manager of Delamer House, Julie Curtis, did just that last year when 81 year old Mary was invited to stay over Christmas free of charge! A film about Mary, made for My Home Life by Robur TV, will shortly be available.
Says MHL Director, Tom Owen:
“A lot of care homes are reaching out to their communities; they play a vital role in supporting some of our frailest citizens, particularly at a time of year when older people can feel very isolated.”
