SOLIHULL care homes are offering a warm space for the elderly to escape the cold this winter.
Blossomfield Rose and Blythe Rose are opening their doors to Silhillians so they can escape the weather and have some lunch every Wednesday throughout January and February.
From 11am-3pm, the Blossomfield Road and Wood View Rise homes will welcome those seeking warmth, a hot drink and something to eat during the colder months.
Places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.
However, the homes will do their best to cater for anyone who is in need over the winter period.
Sharen Guise, director of operations for Macc Care which run the homes, said: “For some, winter can be a cold and lonely period.
“We’d hate to see anyone suffer, so we’re urging anyone who might be alone and looking for a safe space to come and socialise and enjoy some lunch at one of our homes.
“Some elderly can go days without seeing anybody else, so welcoming them into a warm space gives them a chance to meet and chat with others in a similar position and our friendly and welcoming staff, who are extending their excellent level of care and compassion to the wider community.”
