The Friends of Care Homes





"My husband, who sadly suffers with vascular dementia, has been attending ‘The Friends of Care Homes’ for quite some time now.


He always returns from these sessions happy and stimulated and I know he really enjoys his time there, which for me, as his wife and sole carer gives me great pleasure and complete piece of mind that he is well looked after."

"Dear Vicky

I would just like to thank you and your team of volunteers for the amazing weekend club. The entertainment and fun that you all make every Saturday and Sunday gives my Aunt Bridget a mood lift. She would be very isolated at the weekends without your club.


The Friends of Care Homes, gives carers a much needed break. When their family members come along. It is a much-needed activity for all those that attend. My auntie no longer feels isolated, and reliant on me for company 24/7. It has given her a new lease and outlook on life. She so enjoys meeting everyone and chatting about all that happened the previous week and she has a sense of real purpose knowing that she can help someone else to play bingo or to be part of a team playing a quiz or card game.


I can't thank you all enough for the happiness you have brought to Bridget's life.

"Hi Vicky


I am so grateful to the Friends of Care Homes and their volunteers who care for, and entertain my husband Jeffrey on a Saturday afternoon. It gives me a few hours to do things for myself. They are so kind to him, and he really enjoys himself. Its wonderful to have the transport too.


Weekends can be very long if you do not have family locally.


Best wishes"
