Residents check in for an afternoon on Concorde

Abbey Wood Lodge residents were VIPs for the day when they visited Manchester Runway Park to board the infamous Concorde.

To mark Dementia Action Week Abbey Wood Lodge was joined by former Mayor of Maghull, Councillor June Burns on a guided tour of the supersonic passenger airliner in the runway’s hanger, learning all about its world-renowned history.

Lesley Malone, Group Events Ambassador for Athena Healthcare Group, organised the trip and said: “It was absolutely fantastic to see Concorde in Manchester but to see the faces of our residents throughout the trip was even better!

“Each and every one of them thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I know I can speak on behalf of all of them when I say it was a truly unforgettable trip!”

Friends from Athena's Hesketh Park Lodge, Parklands Lodge and Woodlands Lodge also joined the team on the trip.

“All of the staff are caring, professional and treat clients respectfully and as individuals. They excel in their drive to provide the highest level of care whilst allowing a homely, intimate atmosphere to prevail. As a family, we are delighted that Abbey Wood Lodge opened in time to provide this excellent care for our relative and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.”
