Wishing Wells

brighterkind Wishing Wells is a programme that aims to fulfil the (sometimes lifelong) wishes of our care home residents. Find out whose dreams we’ve made come true recently in our blog posts below.

Thelma’s wish comes true at The Granby with treats from Bettys

The Magic Moments Club team at The Granby Care Home were thrilled to make a Wishing Well Wish come true for their resident Thelma who until recently has been shielding due to the pandemic.

Thelma wished to reunite with her friend Susan over a special afternoon tea, so team members decided to bring the famous Harrogate tea rooms, Bettys, to The Granby!

Tis the season to be jolly at Woodbury House

Residents of Woodbury House Care Home are in the Christmas spirit as they make a resident’s wish come true.

Our lovely resident, Joyce asked to decorate the Christmas tree as part of her Wishing Well. Everyone here at Woodbury loves Christmas so we were all excited to transform our home with Christmas decorations.

Making wishes come true at Kingston

Kingston Care Home nearly made their resident shed a tear of joy as they make his wish come true.

Our lovely resident, Michael was born in Hungary but moved to the UK when he was a child. Michael has always dreamt of visiting his home country and loves talking about Hungary. 

For Michael’s Wishing Well we decided to bring Hungary to him! Our Magic Moments Activities Coordinator, Csilla is from Hungary, so she did a fantastic job at organising this special day for Michael.

Wishes come true at Woodbury House

Woodbury House Care Home made their resident, May’s dream come true with a crafty activity. 

May’s profession was a seamstress and she spent a lot of her time at a sewing machine making jackets. Her husband also worked in the textile industry, so May has very found memories of her career and often tells us lovely stories from her past.
