Just because you live in a care home, doesn’t mean you should lose your independence.
This was certainly the case for two ladies from The Cedars & Larches Care Home in Ilkeston, as they attended the grand opening of a new coffee shop in their local community.
Nina Wright, Home Manager, explained: “Here at The Cedars & Larches we believe that by promoting independence, it gives our residents a sense of well-being. The coffee shop invited our residents to its event, and two of our ladies jumped at the chance. They enjoyed a hot drink and a giant muffin. The care workers were so happy seeing the residents happy. Who said living in a care home should be dull and boring.”
