Additional services for elderly/ vulnerable in our communities

Big Tea events: Independent Age have a campaign to try and alleviate loneliness called the ‘Big Tea’. Packs can be obtained. There is also an initiative from the  East of England Co-Op  who are giving free tea to community groups for one off events as well on a regular basis. There are other supermarket initiatives, such as Tesco who have community champions who provide refreshments at events and even serve them. Nearly all the libraries in Norfolk also run ‘Just A Cuppa’ events.  These are weekly, free events where people can come to the library and chat over a cup of tea  and as part of the Norfolk County Councils ‘In Good company’ campaign. Details can be found on the Norfolk Directory as well as via Debs at: [email protected]

Music Mirrors: these link short written scraps of life story information with sounds or music to cue positive memories and provide comfort at times of change or anxiety. They cost nothing, can be shared digitally or on paper, make a simple practical difference to person-centred care and are easily made with support from volunteers or families as well as professionals. They were originally devised for people living with memory loss but have a much wider application. Workshops and support are offered for a nominal fee of £20.00 to interested groups.
