We have many touching stories of our residents from around our four care homes in Bristol and we’d love to share some with you.

Bristol Care Homes Stories Jules

Special Trip for Wonderful Jules at Field House

Jules expressed her wish to take a drive on the Downs and get an ice cream at the Sea Wall, as she used to visit there a lot when she was younger.

On the way, our Field House Activities Assistant, Jeremy asked if there was anywhere else she would like to go. Jules said that she had never been to Cabot Tower, so a quick change of direction and off they went. As they turned into Great George Street, Jules could see the tower in front of her and started to feel really joyful.

Jule’s day got even better when Jeremy suggested that they go into the park, sit under the tower and have a cup of tea. After a cuppa, Jeremy and Jules had a lovely drive to the Downs and a fabulous, small, ice cream! Jules said the trip was just what she needed.

Every week our activities teams are trying to arrange as many one-to-one trips as possible for our wonderful residents. These trips are in advance to the daily activities and trips we are organising in each home.

A Special Day for Mo at Glebe House

Mo was a regular bingo player who went twice a week with her dear friend Teresa.

Tracy, the Activities Coordinator, and Carly, the Minibus Driver at Glebe House, drove Mo and another resident to the Hall in Fishponds, where they had lots of fun playing.

Mo stated that it brought back many memories and that it was amazing to see how it has altered, with the option of playing on paper or a tablet.

There were no winners, but it was Mo’s wish to go, and she had a great time!

Party Time with DJ Gerald at Beech House

With a very special event, Beech House was buzzing with excitement.

For an hour, resident DJ Gerald played his own vinyl tunes on his cherished record player, which got the Beech crowd singing and dancing.

Gerald, a music lover wanted to give his fellow residents a musical afternoon of entertainment. Let’s just say that he truly pulled it off, and everyone had a great time and is looking forward to the next event.

Homemade musically themed cakes and hot drinks were provided to make the event even more spectacular. Sandra, Claire, and Matty (Activities Team) were delighted to accommodate Gerald’s wish!

Well done Gerald, everyone enjoyed it.

Special Delivery for Rich at Quarry House

Quarry House has had an emotional but joyful day. Rich, a resident, used to be a lorry driver, which he did for the majority of his working life. Rich would watch truck shows on television and raise his eyebrows when he saw them on the road during a day trip.

To give you an idea of what it was like-truck music was playing as Andy slowly drove up the drive, beeping the horn. In the distance, a gathering of residents and staff members celebrated as the truck approached.

A special thank you to the following people for making a difference today: Lorraine, Andy, Sarah, Sharon, Tina, Shelley, Marcia, Simon, Aston, Grace, Giselle, Connie, Sophie, and the wonderful company IVECO.
