Twenty Care UK homes to take part in Dementia UK’s ‘Time for a cuppa’ fundraising event.

February 23rd 2012

Residents at around twenty Care UK residential and nursing homes have chosen to raise money for Dementia UK as part of Time for a Cuppa day next Monday (27th February).

Time for a Cuppa is about bringing people together across the country to hold an event at home, in the workplace or in the community to help raise much-needed funds to support the work of Dementia UK, a charity dedicated to improving life for people with dementia.

Residents, kitchen teams, carers, and managers will be making and decorating cakes to sell on the day and even friends and relatives of residents have volunteered to bake cakes to raise money for this cause which is so close to many of their hearts.

As well as tea parties and cake sales, many of the homes have also arranged other events to mark the day and raise funds for Dementia UK. Examples include:

  • At Whitby Dene home in Middlesex, visitors can hear helpful talks about dementia
  • Residents at Paisley Court in Liverpool will be rocking and rolling with an Elvis lookalike
  • The catering team at Cathkin House in East Kilbride will be adding Clootie dumplings to the tea time menu
  • At Mitchell House in Poole there will be a raffle and tombola alongside the tea and cakes

Care UK managers believe that the company is leading the way in residential and respite dementia care. As well as working with experts at Stirling University to research how environments affect the wellbeing of people with dementia, Care UK has created a ground-breaking experiential training course that lets staff experience many of the effects of dementia first hand.
