A CARE home in Worcester has launched a cafè which offers free food and drinks to emergency services staff.

A spokeswoman for Latimer Court said staff were aware that paramedics, nurses, police officers and other emergency services workers don't always have time to go home or back to their workplace on their break, and so wanted to make sure they were looked after.

She added: "You are invited to pop in to Latimer Court and take your break on us for free.

"We would be delighted to offer you tea, coffee, juice, chilled water, delicious homemade cake and biscuits and a healthy selection of fruit, available to you free of charge.

"So when you are due a break or have a few minutes head over and see us – we offer comfortable facilities including free wi-fi and would be delighted to see you."

Latimer Court, in Darwin Drive, is part of the Barchester Healthcare group. The 80-bed home offers residential and nursing care, as well as personalised dementia support.
