Resident’s Wish Comes True with a Chauffeur Driven Visit to Tottenham Hotspur’s Stadium

Back in January we asked our residents at Aria Court Care Home to tell us what their wishes were for this year. It could be anything they wanted – from a meal with family, a long overdue catch up with relatives abroad or simply a bouquet of flowers one morning. While those requests have been easy to fulfil, with the changing restrictions, it’s been hard for us to get out and about.

There was one wish which we’ve been wanting to make a reality this year from two of our residents. Our residents requested to go back down to visit their childhood neighbourhoods in London and to have a look around Tottenham Hotspur’s gleaming new stadium!

Sheila and Michael were chauffeur driven from our home in March, Cambridgeshire down to North London where they were greeted by the fantastic Simon, who’s the Disability Access Officer for Tottenham Hotspur. Our residents spent some time with him recalling stories of living on Paxton Road (which used to be on land where the new stadium stands) and attending matches many years ago, before heading off on their brilliant stadium tour.

Our residents said: “I had a brilliant time. I used to live right next door to the stadium, the staff were friendly and helpful.” and, “It was a great experience”.
