Hannah’s Simple Blog Post

Ashbourne Court Care Home. Resident June enjoying a cocktailThis September across our homes we hosted Community Coffee Mornings in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We invited our neighbours into our homes for a chat and piece of cake. This not only helped to raise some money for a great cause but was also a brilliant event to help our residents stay connected with their community.

Why is it important to feel part of the community?

Maintaining or building local connections is incredibly important in helping communities to flourish. This is especially relevant when we think about our older generation. The community benefits from the wisdom they offer, the social history they carry, and the comfort they bring. In return, individuals gain a sense of belonging and inclusion. Whether an individual continues to feel involved in something that has been such an important part of their life for so long, or they have recently moved areas, it remains just as important to surround them with the people, amenities, and events nearby, so they feel at home in and comforted by the world around them.

The memories and wisdom of elders are invaluable resources, and we should all learn to embrace the value of multiple generations within a community. The world we live in is a rapidly changing place, and who better to share their knowledge or give advice on making the most of our time here than somebody who has experienced so much, especially within the community where you live?
