Tea room will care for its guests
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.
