The residents at Priors Mead could be forgiven for thinking they weren’t in a care home.
On Thursday 18th April, Majestic Wine are giving a wine tasting for the residents and their guests. As you might expect, this is normally a rather jolly affair, with much debate as to which are the best, and for a reason.
Priors Mead offers complimentary wine to its residents to help wash the home-cooked lunches and dinners down, and the fruit of the evening’s work will therefore be enjoyed for the weeks and months to come. In reality, the residents will select a number of wines which will then be supplemented by new additions as they become available throughout the year.
Joanna Nykiel, Head of Home at Priors Mead explained, “we work very hard to ensure the home never becomes an institution, whether through helping our clients to get out in their own Residents Car, or ensuring they decide how they spend their time in the home. Providing complimentary quality wine is just another way of making sure their lives are as similar as possible to how they were before they joined us.”
For a home that has been delivering care to the local community for more than twenty years, it is nice to see Priors Mead are still innovating.
