It was Easter eggs all round when three little Easter bunnies arrived at the Sing-a-Long Café organised by Home Instead Senior Care Windsor & Egham held at Manor Farm Day Centre in Egham.
On the second Wednesday of each month the memory café provides an opportunity for anyone living with dementia, as well as their carers, friends and their families to take a trip down memory lane. They enjoy songs which get their feet tapping, hands clapping and voices singing as they enjoy an hour of musical reminiscence.
However, this week there was added ‘eggcitement’ with a very special delivery from the three Easter bunnies, Lucia, Isaebail and Ruby who presented each person with a lovely chocolate Easter egg.
Anitra Camargo, Managing Director of Home Instead Senior Care which organises the monthly memory café with Manor Farm said, “Everyone was captivated. We are not sure if it was the bunnies or the chocolate, but the clients sang louder, danced harder and a great time was had by all. We are so grateful to Debra and Lisa from Manor Farm for helping us to run our Sing-a-Long Café. There is always such a great attendance from the Day Centre and our clients and our caregivers love to come too.”
Debra Mooney, Manager at Manor Farm Day Centre commented, “Every month we look forward to welcoming entertainers Kiddley Divey and Home Instead here to the centre. We can really see how much all of our visitors enjoy the Sing-a-Long Café and how they all benefit from coming together and having fun.”
Anitra added, “There are too many older people isolated and lonely in their own homes. We like to bring people together in joy, singing and laughter. Anyone can come to the Café, it’s free and we run it because we love it.”
