A night out to the theatre is always a treat and it is the one thing two of our residents had been missing – so we made it happen!
Yvonne McGrath and friend Mary Large, who live with us at Goodwins Hall Care Home in King’s Lynn, were talking to Lifestyles Coordinator Michelle Hyam about their love of live theatre recently.
Realising how much they would love to see a show, Michelle stepped in to make their wish come true.
MIchelle booked tickets for a stand-up comedy show at The Corn Exchange in King’s Lynn and invited Mary’s daughter to join them.
They travelled by taxi to the theatre and enjoyed an evening of live entertainment – and friendship.
Michelle said: “They both said they wanted to go to the theatre so I picked a comedy show because I knew it would be fun.
“Mary’s daughter came too and we all had a good laugh. Laughter is so good for the soul, we were all in good spirits when we left.”
Mary and Yvonne agreed it was a great night out and Yvonne said: “I like to get out and about.”
Jayne Wardell-White, Registered Home Manager, said: “We ask our residents throughout the year if there is something they would like to experience or a memory they look back on fondly that we can help recreate.
“At Goodwins Hall we are passionate about making every moment matter, we want to ensure our residents always have something exciting to look forward to and to give them the chance to bank even more happy memories during their time with us.”
At neighbouring Amberley Hall Care Home we made a moment for three football fans by arranging for them to see The Linnets play their last home game of the season.
