Valerie enjoys her ‘evening out’ at Barton Lodge

Valerie enjoys her ‘evening out’ at Barton Lodge

As part of our ‘Wish Makers’ initiative, our fantastic activities team at Barton Lodge pulled out all the stops to take Valerie and her guest to a very special ‘restaurant’.

Valerie’s wish was to enjoy a three-course meal in a restaurant. Unfortunately, due to lockdown, this wasn’t possible. However, this obstacle didn’t stand in the way of Jenny and Barbara from our activities team. With the help of our talented chef, Justin, they transformed the beautiful Turret Room at Barton Lodge into Valerie’s very own private dining experience.

Valerie and her special guest, Joan, tucked into some of Valerie’s favourites – prawn cocktail, gammon & chips, followed by apple pie and a selection of cheeses.

Commenting on Valerie’s wish, Jenny and Barbara from Barton Lodge’s activities team said; “It was lovely to see Valerie’s wish come true. Valerie and Joan thoroughly enjoyed their ‘evening out’ and thanked Justin for the wonderful food. We love being able to grant residents’ wishes and this is a perfect example of the thoughtful touches that make experiences extra special for those who live with us at Barton Lodge.”

Stay tuned for our next wish!
