WORLD Alzheimer’s Day was celebrated at a Rotherham care home with a tea party.
Broadacres Care Home, on Naylor Street, Parkgate, held one of many celebrations around the country marking the international day.
The event aims to raise awareness of dementia and generate support for the 850,000 individuals living with the condition in the UK alone.
Staff at the home organised afternoon tea and cakes for the residents and visitors.
Among them was Rotherham Deputy Mayor Cllr Alan Buckley and his wife Deputy Mayoress Sandra Buckley.
Alzheimer’s Society volunteer Corain Carry provided information, advice and guidance to anyone at the home interested to learn more about dementia.
Singer Terry Freeborn provided entertainment throughout the afternoon.
Helen Walker, home manager at Broadacres Care Home, said: “We are a specialist dementia and residential care home so raising awareness and funds for dementia research is a cause close to the hearts of everyone who lives and works here.
“World Alzheimer’s Day is another fantastic opportunity to shine the spotlight on a condition that affects so many lives throughout the UK.
“We’re delighted the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress could join us for afternoon tea. We’d also like to thanks Corain from the Alzheimer’s Society for coming along and Terry for providing entertainment.
“Everyone had a wonderful afternoon and we’re already looking forward to next year.”
