Meet the family: A chat with Jean

As you settle into life in a care home, meeting and getting to know other residents is a great way to start feeling at home. Finding shared interests or local connections facilitates friendship building and swapping stories and reminiscing helps people to feel at ease in their new home.

Meet jean who lives at Tallington Lodge Care Home in Tallington near Stamford in Lincolnshire:

Jean is 88 and has lived at Tallington Lodge since November 2019. We sat down with Jean over a cup of tea and asked her what she is most proud of in her life; 

"I am very proud of my son and my husband of course, we were married for thirty years and he was a policeman".

Jean's favourite place to visit is Cyprus where she visited her brother when he was stationed there with the RAF. Jean loves to sew and made many of her own clothes and dresses, for many years she worked as a shop assistant in a local paint shop.

Describe yourself in three words:

Funny, unique and happy

What do you enjoy most about living at Tallington Lodge?

"There is always someone to talk to and you can't get lonely, I enjoy sitting in the garden when the sun is shining. The staff here are all really lovely and so kind."

Jean's favourite food at Tallington Lodge:

"I really enjoy the evening meals, my favourites are the toasties and cheese and biscuits. I love the afternoon teas too, they're a real treat!"
