Sanctuary Care Home

A Hatfield care home is inviting elderly residents to attend a 1950s-themed party in a bid to combat loneliness.

On Sunday, October 1, between 2pm and 4pm, older people from the local community and their families are invited to the Hatfield Residential and Nursing Home in Tamblin Way for a rock ‘n’ roll-themed celebration.

The party is being held in connection with Silver Sunday, a national day set up by the Sir Simon Milton Foundation that celebrates older people and attempts to help combat isolation.

Residents and the team are hoping the community will join them for live music and a delicious high tea menu, with a variety of finger sandwiches and cakes.

The team will also be stepping back in time as they dress for the rolled-back occasion.

The home’s manager Mary Tolladay said: “We are all really looking forward to this year’s Silver Sunday event, celebrating our residents and local older people.

“We hope to see lots of new and familiar faces for what promises to be a very special occasion.”

For Sanctuary Care (who own the care home), this year’s Silver Sunday is extra special, because it marks the start of the 20th anniversary of when we started delivering care.
