Isle Court Nursing Home invited residents to enjoy luxury sandwiches, cakes and a variety of specially selected teas in the first of six ‘Ritz inspired’ Afternoon Teas hosted by Morris Care.
Staff at the Home provided a first-rate dining experience whilst residents listened to the sound of a piano playing. Specially designed cake stands were taken to each table, with tea poured to the desired strength for a truly indulgent experience. Prosecco, scones and a vast selection of cakes followed finger sandwiches to complete the afternoon.
The initiative has been created to complement each Home’s busy social activity programme, which helps residents maintain their independence and participate in activities within the relaxing environment of their home.
Sue Austin, Chief Operating Officer, said: “The first Afternoon Tea experience was exactly what we envisaged. The vintage tableware, food and music helped residents to reminisce and they all had such wonderful things to say about it.”
“For many years from the 1900s our parent company, Morris and Company, owned a celebrated café on Pride Hill in Shrewsbury and it’s interesting to see how the concept of afternoon tea has evolved.”
Five more ‘Ritz inspired’ Afternoon Tea experiences will be taking place over the next three months across Morris Care’s Nursing Homes.
