Older People’s Day is celebrated on October 1 to coincide with the UN International Day of Older Persons and is used to mark the achievements and contributions that older people make to society and the economy.

Older People’s Day is celebrated on October 1 to coincide with the UN International Day of Older Persons and is used to mark the achievements and contributions that older people make to society and the economy.

Residents at The Hazelwell, a £5.5 million development which opened earlier this summer on the site of the old Cleaver Hospital, enjoyed other fun events including card games, quizzes and movies in the home cinema room.

Local pianist Peter Lord also played a host of familiar tunes in the piano bar with delicious food and refreshments served by head chef Steve Devenport and his team.

The event was free to members of the general public with many residents from Heswall dropping in on the day.

Liza Millington, our home manager at The Hazelwell, said: “Older People’s Day is all about challenging stereotypes and promoting positive attitudes to ageing.

“At The Hazelwell, we wanted to join in with this initiative and help make a difference by sending the message out there locally that age is just a number.

“The residents had a great day and it was good to see so many local people from Heswall drop in to join in the celebrations too.”

We are also offering anyone over the age of 65 free art therapy classes in October. Freelance artist Nel Brindle will be running regular workshops at the care home throughout the month and you do not need to be an artist or even artistic to join in with the fun.

There are limited spaces available so please call Liza on 0151 342 9654 for more information.
