Every Monday or several times a week if we’re feeling spontaneous, we host a Chinwag Café.
We have found it a great way of bringing people together for a good old-fashioned chat and we have many regulars to these sessions, so the café has proven to be one of the most popular activities on our leisure and wellness programme.
Val and Grace are regular visitors and have formed a great friendship through their shared love of a chat over a cup of tea which is exactly the purpose of hosting a session such as this. We wanted our residents to form great friendships so they could chat about everything from the weather to the latest news or their personal experiences, limiting the chances of them ever feeling isolated and lonely.
From a Chinwag Café to a computer club, bringing people together is what we do well! After all, ‘there are no strangers here, only friends we have not yet met.’
