Kirkcaldy care home takes part in Friday Friends initiativeResidents and colleagues at HC-One’s Chapel Level care home, in Kirkcaldy, Fife, have been welcoming in their local community to join them for Afternoon Tea for ‘Friday Friends’ Day on Friday 3rd November as part of Meals on Wheels Week, taking place from 30th October to 3rd November 2023.

Meals on Wheels Week is a national event hosted by the National Association of Care Catering (NACC), designed to bring together Health and Social Care sectors, caterers, service providers, food suppliers, volunteers, carers, older people, policy makers and the public to raise awareness about the importance of meals delivered in the community.

Relatives and residents attended the afternoon tea event on 3rd November and had a lovely time chatting among each other while enjoying some delicious bites, including sausage rolls, sandwiches, cupcakes, brownies, and chocolate eclairs, as well as an endless supply of tea and coffee. 

Relatives commented that they enjoyed the event so much they would like to make it a regular thing.

Relative Jean Dewer, whose husband Robert lives at Chapel Level, said:
“It was an absolutely lovely afternoon, we introduced ourselves to the other family that was there. 

The food was lovely and loved the little copper teapot. Robert had five little cakes and sandwiches, so he loved it. 

Phoebe (Wellbeing Coordinator) was brilliant and kept us entertained and chatted with us throughout. It was a really nice afternoon.”

Phoebe Mead, Wellbeing Coordinator at Chapel Level, commented:
“Friday Friends for Meals on Wheels Week was a really good afternoon.”
