Worcester Care Home Residents Take Flight Over the County in Exciting Helicopter Ride

Residents at The Belmont in Worcester took part in a helicopter flying experience to prove that nothing should stop you from doing something that your heart is set on.

Earlier this year, both residents were presented with the question about what their dream would be; both residents said to fly high and see the world from above. The team made this dream a reality, by organising a day in the skies.

Flying over Eastnor Castle and the Malvern Hills, the 20-minute flight was a memorable moment for Christine and Tanya.

The day was not only a new and exciting experience for both residents, but one of reflection, flying over many sights that invoked strong memories and sentimental meaning.

At the end of session, they received certificates of achievement, which they proudly showcased in their home.

Registered Home Manager for The Belmont, Sandie Preece, said:

“Our two wonderful residents are living with dementia and when we asked them if they had a wish, both residents wanted to see the world from high above. To grant that wish for them and see the delight in their faces when they took off was truly lovely to see. Our Belmont wishes are in place for all of residents to make, and we try our hardest for them to come true. We are so pleased that we could fulfil this wish for them both and want to thank everyone involved for making it such an enjoyable experience.”
