Louth Dementia café hosted 20 attendees supported by a £200 sponsorship from local home care provider, The Great Care Company on Wednesday 12th December for their annual Christmas meal celebration.
Along with the donation, The Great Care Company sent along two of their Care Assistants, Sue Del-Toro and Amy Wilkinson and Sales Director, Dominique Bernard, to volunteer their services and join in with the festivities!
The 20 attendees to the Dementia Cafe enjoyed a traditional Christmas meal followed by performances and carols from children of both Lacey Gardens Primary School and Greenwich House. Sam Gilbert, who recently entered into the role organising the Louth Dementia café and was involved in the event last year exclaimed
“It’s going lovely, it’s their end of year dinner and they’re all enjoying it. It’s nice for them all to get together.”
When asked why The Great Care Company chose to make their Christmas donation to the Dementia Café this year, Director Dominique advised,
“Everyday we work with those who have all levels of Dementia, it’s a condition close to so many people and we really value the hard work that the Trinity Centre put in every week of the year with their meetings for not only Dementia, but with their Social Isolation and Stroke groups too.”
