Myhomecare’s Day Out with Care of the Elderly

Care of the Elderly is a non-profit Irish volunteer charity in Dublin City. It aims to bring friendship and companionship to elderly people who might live alone or feel lonely. Friends of the elderly’s focus is on a practical approach to dealing with loneliness and social isolation, alleviating its effects by providing social engagement programs such as Home Visitation, Friendly Call Service, Social Club and organizing Day Trips or Social Events.

Myhomecare sponsored the trip this year which included a trip Belfast, having dinner, going shopping, singing and dancing. Myhomecare have had the joy of sponsoring these events since 2017. After a break due to Covid, we were delighted to be able to reconnect with everyone in 2022 while meeting some new faces.

Care of The Elderly Day Out 2022

Our day started in Dublin, as everyone got on the bus to head to our first destination, The Valley Inn in Co. Louth. At The Valley Inn, we were all greeted by tea and scones and everyone got to catch up with each other. Everyone received a MyHomeCare goodie bag which contained sweets, notebooks, pens and more.

Next stop, Co. Belfast! In Belfast, we began our guided bus tour by our lovely tour guide Colin. We got to see sights such as the Titanic Quarter, The peace wall and many famous murals. After our lovely tour we all headed back into the city for an hour where everyone could do what they wish for an hour. Some people chose to go shopping and others for a coffee and catch-up.

On our way home, we stopped back in at The Valley Inn, Dunleer, for dinner and some line dancing. Our fantastic musician on the keyboard kept us entertained and got everyone up on their feet. After a long but exciting day it was time to go home. MyHomeCare were proud to support this event and are looking forward to seeing everyone again and to meet some new faces in 2023!

I really enjoyed my day out in Belfast with Care of the Elderly! All the ladies and gents we’re up for making the most out of the day with shopping, dancing and enjoying themselves. Looking forward to our next day trip.’
