The Big Live-In Care Tea Party!

Home carer sat in garden drinking tea with elderly lady

A group of the UK's finest Live-in Care Agencies have come together to plan a celebration for all those in receipt of/providing/promoting Live-in Care and private carers, and we'd love for you to join in too!

How does it work?

It’s really very simple – it’s a chance to invite friends, family, a home carer & neighbours to join you (and your client/private carer if you are one) for a celebration – so come on, make a traditional English tea, pop on your crown, wave your flag, raise a glass and smile for the camera; then email them to and we will post them on our social media pages and in our newsletters and you can be part of the Big Live-in Care Tea Party this summer. If you are a social media butterfly, please help us promote and post/tweet using the hashtags #liveincare #Queens90th

Very British Prizes for the best pics of course! !Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

Here's a Recipe to help:

Salmon & Cucumber Sandwiches

Couldn’t be easier: Spread chosen bread with cream cheese and layer thinly sliced cucumber & smoked salmon (or tinned if you prefer). Cut into delicate slices and cut off the crusts. Eat with your little finger raised of course!
