On Monday 21st December we hosted our annual customer Christmas lunch.
Our customers enjoyed a three course meal, prepared and served by our passionate and hardworking office team and were entertained whilst they ate by a local choir singing traditional Christmas carols.
We invited our customers to bring along family, loved ones and friends with them to the lunch, creating a fun and festive atmosphere with everyone joining in and chatting together.
We host the Christmas Lunch to help combat the feelings of isolation and loneliness that many people feel at Christmas. Jacqueline Fyall, our Business Leader (Registered Manager) said “We wanted to put on a relaxed, fun and welcoming day for our customers, where they could come and enjoy a turkey lunch with loved ones or by themselves. It was so lovely to see them chatting amongst themselves, I even think a few new friendships have been formed!”
The day included a charity raffle which raised over £70 for AgeUK Exeter for their “Noone” campaign.
Customers also enjoyed a few games of Bingo, called out by our Senior Care Coordinator Nicola Stacey. Nicola said it was great to meet the customers she coordinates care visits for, to put faces to names but also get to know them, as a person a little better. “I enjoyed speaking with Mrs B who told me she used to be a teacher and how much she misses it each day. I shared with her a few funny stories of my school days – many of which she could relate to!”
We work hard to provide outstanding support and care to our customers. Achieved through daily care visits but also through a structured programme of customer outings and activities, all designed to enable people to continue to live actively in their community and enjoy many of the wonderful things Devon has to offer.
