Gable Court Bupa Care Home
A care home will be hosting a free tea dance for elderly people to celebrate the value and knowledge they bring to the community.
Gable Court Bupa Care Home, in Roxy Avenue, Romford will be hosting the Silver Sunday event on Sunday, October 2, from 2pm.
The event offers social activities to encourage older people to try new things whilst meeting people in an effort to fight against the growing problem of loneliness amongst the elderly.
“We know loneliness is a growing issue for older people,” said Ronniel Alarilla, home manager at Gable Court.
“It’s great that we are in a position to support Silver Sunday by holding events at our care homes across the country, to offer older members of our community somewhere they can enjoy a fun activity in the company of others.
“I know our residents are looking forward to welcoming some new faces on the day.”
Silver Sunday is a national event launched by the Sir Simon Milton Foundation in 2012.
