At a recent Carers’ Café in Stevenage run by Crossroads Care Hertfordshire North, local carers were treated to an enjoyable poetry session. Group and individual poetry recitals encouraged participation, engaged carers and brought a sense of fun to the activity.
Classic, well-known poems brought back many memories and witty, amusing poems brought much entertainment. Many attendees came prepared with a poem to read, often one of some sentimental value. The Poetry Recital was well-received and gave carers a welcome chance to relax and be themselves.
Carers’ Cafés run by Crossroads Care Hertfordshire North meet regularly to provide carers a break from their responsibilities. A social atmosphere and varied activities help carers to unwind, create new friends and share experiences.
