In nursing homes and other long term care facilities, the morning and afternoon coffee breaks are very special times when residents may welcome relatives and visitors to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee; strengthen friendships, and catch up with peers and staff.

Enjoying a drink in the company of others is a cherished ritual in many countries. Drinks, hot or cold, are integral to many celebrations. They also provide an opportunity for welcome and well deserved breaks throughout the day.

It is a time to catch up with friends and loved ones and share experiences both profound and mundane!

If we make smoothies/Ice cream floats the staff decorate the glasses with the chocolate and sprinkles with the residents so they have home made cocktails

We often make fruit smoothies for our residents. (Specially on the hot days) For those with dietary requirements we add thickner to. Our residents love love it. We use a stick blender. We cut up the fruit but give the residents some fruit to cut up and eat (hygiene/infection).
