The Gables treat resident to Iceland experience to grant her wish

Chef Heath Brown with resident June after granting her wish to have an Iceland experience.

Staff at The Gables Care Home went above and beyond to grant the wish of our resident June, who has always wanted to visit Iceland. 

Whilst restrictions make it virtually impossible for June to make the trip of her dreams currently, staff at our Gables Care Home set to work ensuring June received the Icelandic experience of her dreams. 

June requested the trip as part of the homes Make-A-Wish-Tree which features wishes from all of our residents, which our staff make sure happen wherever possible. 

The Coronavirus pandemic has obviously limited our abilities to make these experiences happen in the same way as they would previously, which is why we are incredibly proud of the staff team for going above and beyond to grant these wishes in unique and interesting ways. 

June was treated to a documentary about the country which she enjoyed with staff and fellow residents, Icelandic themed presents and our wonderful Chef Heath Brown even donned his best Snowman outfit to give June a real laugh! 

June thoroughly enjoyed the day and we wanted to tell our staff how proud we are of each and every one of them for always putting in so much effort, and going the extra mile.
