2022 June highlights from our care homes and services

Across our care homes and services, residents had a wonderful time enjoying a mixture of fun activities and celebrations last month. Here are our June highlights:

Celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at our care homes and services

For many across the world, Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee was a truly monumental occasion of celebration. At Friends of the Elderly, we have been fortunate to receive Her Majesty’s support for 69 years, as Patron of our charity. We were delighted to join the celebrations as our care homes and services marked the special event, including tree planting ceremonies and parties.
