Staff from Home Instead and Morrison’s are on hand to ensure each event goes smoothly.  Free tea, coffee and biscuits are also provided.  More details below.

First Companionship Cafe in Morrisons Elland May 10th

Posted on Updated on

We attended the first ever meeting of the Compassion Cafe run by Home Instead at the Elland Morrisons cafe.

It was a good turnout, enjoying several interesting conversations, amusing quick games, a short but demanding trivia quiz, all in a cozy atmosphere with plenty of tea and coffee and of course biscuits!

If this sounds like something you would like to take part in, keep an eye out for the next Companionship cafe scheduled for early June, exact date to be confirmed.

 

Our Café is open to older people – whether on their own or with a family member, friend or companion but not exclusive. It is ideal for any older person who is looking for more opportunities to get out, enjoy some conversation and meet new people.

These cafes will be run on a monthly basis. Next cafe will be in June, stay tuned for the exact date.

Morrisons Introduce Quiet Hour for Those with Autism

Posted on Updated on

Morrisons Supermarkets is introducing a ‘Quieter Hour’ across all stores from this Saturday 21 July. From 9:00am until 10:00am every Saturday morning, they will attempt to make the store environment quieter and calmer for customers. For more information see po.st/QHour.

A statement from Morrisons reads;

This new initiative has been created with the support of the National Autistic Society. Many people who are autistic or those with autistic children can find shopping in a supermarket an anxious experience. Having carried out a trial earlier in the year in our Lincoln, Woking and Gainsborough stores, we identified improvements that could be made as well as the best time for the Quieter Hour to take place.

“Around 700,000 people are on the autism spectrum in the UK. This means they see, hear and feel the world differently to other people, often in a more intense way. Morrisons ‘Quieter Hour’ is a step in the right direction for autistic people who find supermarket shopping a real struggle.”
Daniel Cadey, the from the National Autistic Society

Listening to customers, we found that one in five had a friend or family member with autism* and many liked the idea of being able to shop in more comfort at 9-10am on a Saturday. Angela Gray, Morrisons Community Champion at Woking said: “I was involved in the initial trial as my son is autistic and we found that these changes made a real difference. The trial showed there is a need for a quieter shopping experience for some customers.”

During Quieter Hours, our stores will:

  • Dim the lights
  • Turn music and radio off
  • Avoid making tannoy announcements
  • Reduce movement of trolleys and baskets
  • Turn checkout beeps and other electrical noises down
  • Place a poster outside to tell customers it’s Quieter Hour
