Parris Lawn’s Coffee Mornings Bring The Community Closer Together

27th March 2024

Parris Lawn hosts a weekly ‘Dementia Coffee Morning’, which is designed simply to bring the local community closer together.

The Opportunity to Chat and Connect

Just before 11.30am every Friday, you’ll find the team at Parris Lawn Care Home in Lewes setting out coffee cups, filling teapots and arranging plates of biscuits, ready for their regular ‘Dementia Coffee Morning’. Alongside the chance to relax and socialise in the lovely Parris Lawn lounges – or in the gardens when the weather warms up – the coffee mornings also enable guests to speak with professionals in an informal environment, whether they’re looking for information, support or just someone to chat to.

These events are a lot of fun and are, of course, geared around the residents of Parris Lawn who enjoy the social interaction – but they also provide an opportunity for anyone to speak or ask questions about dementia.

Sharing Expertise and Common Goals

Recently, the Parris Lawn team welcomed some special guests to the coffee morning. Julie and Geraldine from Foundry Healthcare Lewes, and Alison and Kat from Home Instead Lewes District and Uckfield, came along and all interacted very positively with residents.

Foundry Healthcare operate four GP surgeries in Ringmer and Lewes, and one of their GPs attends Parris Lawn every week, so there’s already a strong connection with residents. David, a resident who’s lived in Ringmer all his life said, “Having Foundry so close is a godsend. They have been part of my life for so many years and without them, times would have been tough”.

Home Instead are Parris Lawn’s local Domiciliary Care Team, and having joined forces over the past year, their shared goal is helping local communities to better understand dementia and those who are living with dementia. After the coffee morning, Alison from Home Instead commented, “It was a pleasure to be there and converse with such lovely residents and team members”.

Everyone’s Welcome on Friday Mornings

If you need some company and fancy a chat over a brew, or have questions around any area of care, whether it’s planning your future care or information about Nursing Care, Dementia Care or Holiday Respite Stays, then this is the place to be on Friday mornings at 11.30!

All are welcome so please feel free to call the home on 01273 086388 and let them know you will be attending.
