​​​​Cake, Cuppa, Chat​

Developing initiatives in line with the care homes needs, the Vanguard has developed and maintained strong relationships with the care home staff, their residents and families.

Regular Cake, Cuppa, Chats were held for the Vanguard team to visit the residents and their families at the care homes, sharing the work of the programme and what we are doing to support the care they receive. This opportunity was also used to hear what is important to them in the hope of identifying what could be done to support their wishes and needs. 

These informal events, which included delicious home-made cakes and tea have enabled us to forge long-lasting, open and trusting relationships.
