Residents check in for an afternoon on Concorde

Athena Healthcare Group’s 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, Hesketh Park Lodge, Parklands Lodge and Woodlands Lodge were 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!”

“The facilities at Abbey Wood Lodge are very well designed giving my mum independence and support. The care given to her is to a high standard and this shows by the way she has settled in and is enjoying life again. We all feel Mum is in the best place.”
