Charlton Lane hospital in Cheltenham is holding a garden party for families and carers of older people living with dementia or other mental health conditions.
The event is being held on Thursday, September 25 from 3 until 5pm.
Activities will include a tombola, throw the sponge, basket hoops, face painting, treasure maps and a range of other games and music.
Afternoon tea and other refreshments will be served.
Gemma Coltraro, Mulberry Ward Manager, said: “We are holding the garden party to help celebrate the often unrecognised role that carers provide someone with mental ill-health. Caring is such an important role and can often have significant impact on both the life of a carer and the person in their care.
“This will be a time for carers and the person in their care to join others in a relaxed, entertaining environment.”
A Carer is anyone who gives unpaid support to look after someone who is unable to look after themselves, with a disability, frailty or illness. Without their support, the person they care for could not manage.
Carers can be any age, culture, background or gender. It is estimated that 1 in 8 adults care for someone. This means that there are around 63,000 carers in Gloucestershire alone.
Gemma continued: “Everyone is really looking forward to the event. There will be musical entertainment, afternoon tea, games, activities and gifts for all carers. We look forward to seeing people we already know and making new friends.”
