Care Provider Makes Dreams Come True for Football Fanatic Residents
Two football fanatics from Shrewsbury and Wellington nursing homes were taken to watch their favourite football teams battle it out last Saturday at Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
Residents Gordon Millington and Anna Magarthy were accompanied by Laura Robinson and Katie Hickman, both Care Assistants from Morris Care, as they cheered their team on at the Shrewsbury vs Wolves game on Saturday 26th January.
Gordon, from Morris Care Centre in Wellington, has supported Wolverhampton Wanderers since he was a boy. Anna, aged 80 from Radbrook Nursing Home in Shrewsbury, who is an equally passionate fan, has supported her home team Shrewsbury Town for as long as she can remember. They have both wanted to attend a football game whilst staying with Morris Care and the care provider made it happen.
Alison Hearle, Morris Care’s Dementia and Social Life Lead said: “Doing things like this for our residents is what quality care is all about. Of course, the clinical side of what we do is our priority, but a good quality social life is just as valuable for our residents’ wellbeing.
“I’m so pleased we managed to do this for Gordon and Anna, they were so grateful and absolutely loved the experience. I hope we can do more things like this in the future.”
Morris Care has been delivering quality nursing care for the elderly, the disabled and those living with dementia for over 25 years. With six Nursing Homes across Shropshire and Cheshire, Morris Care is proud to be a part of Morris & Company, a fifth-generation, family-run business that is celebrating its 150th birthday this year.
