Enjoying Brew Monday at Broadmead Resthome

18/01/2021

Brew Monday

Brew Monday was created because the 3rd Monday in January is thought to be blue Monday turned into brew Monday to encourage everyone to reach out to people.

Feeling alone with your problems can have a big impact on mental health. Reach out to a friend, family member or colleague for a chat. Listening to another person could help them work through what’s on their mind.

For a feeling of togetherness and friendship we held a brew Monday tea party at Broadmead Resthome. The morning of the activity the residents prepared beautiful flower arrangements for the dining tables which looked very cheerful. All our residents appreciated them as it was their input to the activity. Involving residents to input into their activity helps us to ensure we are providing more personalised and meaningful activities.

We shared a very civilised afternoon tea, with gentle background music to set the mood. Residents enjoyed having teas, coffee and a lovely selection of cakes. The residents chatted to one another enjoying all the bone chine tableware.

This was a group activity which focused on being part of something and being happy knowing there is always someone there for a chat and a cuppa. Brew Monday was a lovely afternoon which we will carry on the tradition next year. No-one should feel alone, especially at Broadmead Resthome.
