Staff and volunteers across Jewish Care establishments are supporting clients wanting to vote in today's local elections.
Although many opted for postal ballots, some, like 103-year-old Rose Bliss - a resident at the Otto Schiff home in Golders Green - preferred to maintain the ritual of going to the local polling station.
She said it was "definitely" important to vote. "I follow in the footsteps of my mum. I like to have my point of view.”
Jewish Care chief executive Simon Morris said: “We always do all we can to support our clients to be part of the democratic process. Just because you live in a care home, it doesn’t mean your voice doesn’t matter. Rose is someone who has voted her whole life. Her voice and right to engage shouldn’t be lost just because she requires support”.
