Care home residents hoping Christmas wishes come true

Rugby Editorial 22nd Dec, 2022   0

DREAMS can come true for hopeful residents at a Rugby care home who have entered a Christmas wish competition.

Residents at Anya Court were encouraged to make a wish, big or small, and then display it on a tree as part of the home’s festive Lucky Star competition.

Wishes currently on the Lucky Star tree range from a hot chocolate in the park and a party at the pub to a trip to Italy and racing in a fast car.

In the New Year, staff will review the wishes and will make at least one of them come true.

Lifestyles Leader Sue Mitchell added: “We are very excited to make some of these wishes come true. So far, from doing the activity, we have found out some amazing things about our residents and many of the wishes are very small and easily achievable.”

General Manager Michelle Sides said: “Wishes could be anything from seeing their favourite show in the West End to visiting their place of birth or finding a long lost relative.

“Getting to know what residents would really like to do or have, gives us an opportunity to truly make a difference.”
