Tor-Na-Tea -Carers Cafe in Aberdeen

29 February @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

A care home in Aberdeen is welcoming new carers to its monthly support group, designed to help local people caring for an older loved one.

 

Taking place on the last Thursday of every month, starting from 29th February from 10am-12pm, the community is invited to attend the free Tor-Na-Tea Café at Care UK’s Tor-Na-Dee, on North Deeside Road, where carers will be able to speak openly about their experiences in a welcoming, friendly environment.

 

The session aims to provide local carers with advice on support available in the community as well as opportunities to discuss financial guidance, wellbeing assessments and the chance to meet other carers and share experiences – including for those with a loved one living with dementia.

 

According to a recent survey, commissioned by Care UK, eight in ten adults believe dementia is still misunderstood, with 69 percent of the nation believing it’s a subject which is not talked about enough in society. Many people also admit finding the condition uncomfortable to discuss –something Care UK is hoping to change with the launch of The Big Dementia Conversation earlier this year and by hosting regular support sessions for the community.

 

Maureen Barrett, Home Manager at Tor-Na-Dee, said: “At Tor-Na-Dee, we strive to create a sense of belonging within the home and our wider community, aiming to provide a positive impact on local people by building support systems for our neighbours. We want to create a cheerful environment at the café where everyone will feel comfortable, be able to relax and enjoy themselves.

 

“We believe that no carer should feel that they are alone, and we’re looking forward to welcoming some new faces and old friends for a chat over a cup of tea and slice of cake.”

 

Tor-Na-Dee provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care. Designed to enable residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own cinema room and hairdressers, and there is plenty of space both indoors and out for relaxation and recreation.
