Lostock Lodge Care Home resident Christine Burns has always loved a party, so staff at Lostock Lodge Care Home in Northwich arranged a Hawaiian themed party and disco for her as part of their ‘Make a Wish’ initiative. Residents were given the opportunity to tell staff about somewhere they had always wanted to go or a special activity they had always wanted to do.
Seventy-seven-year-old Chris made regular trips to the party island of Ibiza to dance the night away on the beach with friends. Chris told staff how she adored her holidays, parties and dancing and said she would love to do so again. Staff decided to bring the Ibiza vibe to Northwich and arranged a disco with Hawaiian themed decorations, fancy dress, fruity mocktails and VIP wristbands to get everyone in the party spirit.
“Chris had a brilliant day with her Lostock Lodge friends.” Said Home Manager Steph Molden. “Her big smile throughout the party said it all! We all had a great time making her wish come true for her. The residents loved seeing the staff dressed up and they were all dancing along and enjoying the music too”.
The ‘Make a wish’ initiative has seen residents from across the Country Court Care group enjoy special outings and activities; from scoring goals at Sheffield United Football Club, to off-road driving and lots of family tea parties.
