Lincoln Care Home Create Their Very Own Bar

Colleagues and Residents at HC One’s White Gables care home enjoy some time at ‘Foggy’s Bar’.

Rachael Fogg, the unit manager at the Lincoln care home, had an idea to make one of the small lounges at the home into a bar.

After Rachael spoke to maintenance operative Alan Trevor they came up with a plan. As the home is a late stage dementia home it would be unwise to leave a permanent bar open with bottles etc., as this could cause potential problems, so a pop up bar was just the ticket.

Alan came up with an idea of a drop down bar that can be packed away when not in use. After some research online he worked on the weekends at home in his own time to make a fabulous bar that unfolds to use and folds back securely to the wall when not in use.

The bar top is made from bottle tops set in resin and the bar itself has three shelves to hold glasses and bottles.

The Area OD Mags Barton was in the home to see the grand unveiling and a select few Residents got to have the first drinks from Foggy’s Bar.

It looked great and was a fantastic idea, the Residents have loved going to the bar again.
