EDINBURGH HOTEL HOSTS AFTERNOON TEA FOR DEMENTIA GROUP
Wednesday, 15 August 2018
A four-star Edinburgh hotel recently welcomed a local community dementia group for a special afternoon tea.
The boutique Bonham Hotel invited members and staff from the North Edinburgh Dementia Care group for a luxury afternoon of cuppas, cakes, and scones served with cream and preserves.
The Edinburgh community group provides nurturing services, activities and support for people with dementia, as well as their carers.
Lee Walker, Duty Manager of The Bonham Hotel, said: “After meeting the group last year and hearing about their need for local trips for members, we knew we wanted to host a special afternoon tea.
“We had a wonderful afternoon and it gave the members a chance to relax, chat and enjoy cakes and scones prepared by our head chef.”
Susan Cull, Manager of North Edinburgh Dementia Care, said: “We want to say a huge thank you to The Bonham for their invitation to afternoon tea for our members and staff. Our members thoroughly enjoyed the treats and fabulous service from the friendly hotel staff who went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs.
“Our members benefited greatly from the fun-filled day and it gave everyone the opportunity to socialise in a different environment and enjoy a relaxing afternoon while taking in the beauty of the hotel. The delicious scones and cakes were the cherry on top of a lovely day out.”
The Bonham recently underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment unveiling its 49 individually styled and refurbished guest rooms and suites.
