Tea room will care for its guests

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

A BIG-HEARTED care worker is aim­ing to put a smile on the faces of de­men­tia suf­fers after open­ing a tea room.

De­bra Wil­liams, 52, opened The Boat House in Adling­ton along with her son Joseph Wil­liams and brother David Hart.

The tea room was de­signed to cater for peo­ple in need of care and at­tempts to kin­dle the mem­o­ries of de­men­tia suf­fer­ers with 1950s mu­sic and a nos­tal­gic decor.

De­bra said: “All we are is a col­lec­tion of our ex­pe­ri­ences and this dis­ease re­moves those mem­o­ries so if I can make those peo­ple smile for just an hour that is all I want.”

The tea room on Wood Lane East does not solely cater for peo­ple with de­men­tia but takes in all peo­ple in need of care as well as the dis­abled.

De­bra added: “It is a vin­tage style tea room with great en­ter­tain­ment specif­i­cally cater­ing for those with age re­lated is­sues and dis­abil­ity groups.

“The theme changes monthly and we com­pletely dress the house ac­cord­ingly.

“Our tea room is lit­er­ally based on the tow path so you can en­joy your af­ter­noon tea, mu­sic and watch the boats and ducks on the wa­ter at the same time.”

The Boat House is an ap­point­ment-only venue and can be booked through their web­site at the­boathou­se­v­enue. co.uk.
