Tapestry Lunch Club
A sociable day with a difference
Following the Government's announcement on 23 March, Tapestry Lunch Club has had to suspend all its services with immediate effect. We are very sad that we are unable to continue in the current climate and we would like to thank all those who have supported us during the last few months. Please stay safe and follow all government guidelines.
Tapestry Lunch Club is all about supporting people who are living in isolation, feel socially excluded or may be experiencing memory loss and other symptoms associated with early dementia. Our guests generally live in their own homes within the communities of West Sussex and Surrey.
Tapestry Lunch Club is working to address and improve social interaction and offers a different form of support for up to four guests at a time. Our aim is to create an environment where our guests will feel supported and cared for, help reduce anxiety, have regular face-to-face contact with others which enables strong relationships to be built, gain confidence, enjoy being part of a small group and ultimately remain a valued member of their community. A place where friends are made, laughter and memories are shared. Furthermore, Tapestry Lunch Club offers a high quality and regular replacement care for our guests' carers.
Sometimes we understand that meeting new people might be unsettling for our guests, therefore we would be delighted to welcome both guests and their carers to join us for their first lunch with Tapestry Lunch Club. We also are very happy for our guests to come and spend a trial day with us to see if we are the right support service.
Our guests will benefit from a sociable lunch out with delicious home cooked food in the safe and friendly home of a carefully vetted and trained ‘host’. All our hosts are excellent cooks and once vetted, are extensively trained in Safeguarding, Food & Hygiene, Emergency 1st Aid, Dementia Awareness, Manual Handling and will have been fully DBS checked. Transport of our guests is part of TLC’s service and all our hosts’ cars are insured for business use and our hosts’ homes are fully risk assessed under the guidance of Citation Heath & Safety. Our hosts will not be able to provide personal care.
