Blackrock’s Nursing Home Foxford Co Mayo will be hosting an “Afternoon Tea Party” on Friday 20 May 2022 @ 2.30pm.
The Bealtaine Festival in itself is based on the two concepts of Age and Opportunity. Our residents will be encouraged to get involved in the festivities and enjoy what will be a most memorable day with food, drinks and music of their choice. The Afternoon Tea Party will recreate memories of yesteryear for many of the residents. The sight of a tiered stand display of savouries on the bottom tier, scones with cream and or jam on the middle tier and sweets on the top tier will transport our elderly residents back to the 1940’s and 1950’s when tea parties were popular. Specially selected Antique Crockery will resonate with Residents. The tables will be draped with table clothes that willl add magic to the day. They will be encouraged to interact socially with each other, thus giving them an opportunity to reminis on days gone by and arouse a feeling of wellbeing. This will truly be a memorable day for our residents when they will get a chance to stroll down memory lane together.
“AGEING IS JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR LIVING”
