Ivy Court discuss Europe

Over the last few weeks, at Ivy Court care home in Norwich, many of our residents have joined the EU debate as we gear up for the referendum. Brenda says that when she was a teenager her parents used to constantly tell her how “important it is to vote and have your say”. A century after women won the vote, many residents have recounted stories of their mums’ voting for the first time in the 1918 and 1922 general elections and how girls were encouraged to take an interest in politics whilst growing up.

We’ve held coffee morning debates, critiques of morning newspapers, discussions after work with various members of the staff adding their own opinions and knowledge from the UK and around Europe, and our tech savvy residents have been fact checking on their laptops. Popular topics amongst both our men and women include how our residents chose to vote in the last EU referendum (1975), the common market, who makes laws today (London vs Brussels) and what would happen to healthcare in the UK if we leave.

Whilst a few people would prefer to keep their opinions close to their chest until they reach the ballot box, 95% of residents at Ivy Court feel strongly about exercising their right to vote on 23rd June 2016 and are encouraging staff, family and friends to do the same.

Don’t forget to register by 7th June to have your say!
