CARE home residents were treated to strawberries and cream as part of an event to mark a national campaign.

Staff and residents at the Field View Care Home, in Hesleden Road, Blackhall, took part in World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

The cream tea was enjoyed by residents and staff, who wore a purple ribbon in recognition of the campaign’s aim of helping and supporting the most vulnerable and highlighting elder abuse.

Home administrator Julie Atkinson said: “The residents thoroughly enjoyed the day and we had entertainment from an act called Jean’s 40s Remembered.”

Anyone wanting more information on the work being done to combat elder abuse, or who may have concerns about a friend, client or relative, can call the Elder Abuse Helpline on 0808 8088141.
