Wish granted for client at Right at Home South Cheshire
Former Mental Health Nurse Kathleen Woodbridge, known as Kath, achieved one of her personal goals and was the second wish granted in Right at Home UK’s ‘tin-full of wishes’ campaign.
Nominated by her careworker, Malaynie, Kath spent a day at the famous Liverpool Albert Dock, where she was treated as a VIP guest at The Beatles Story, Liverpool, before enjoying a boat tour of the city, complete with afternoon tea.
Commenting on the experience, Kathleen Woodbridge said: “I loved dancing when I was younger – rock and roll dancing especially. I remember watching The Beatles in Stoke, we danced all night – some of the best nights of my life. Me and Les loved going away together, seeing the world. We were on big fancy cruise ships; I’d go anywhere with Les. I lost him just under seven years ago, but it still feels like yesterday – it never gets any easier. He’d have loved coming here today with me but I think he’s watching over us."
Ben Selby, owner of Right at Home South Cheshire said: “I’m so proud of the lengths that our CareGivers have gone to, to help Kath, and also of Kath for the incredible progress she has made in such a short time. This is just one example of some of the amazing stories we get to listen to each day and I feel lucky to be able to be a part of a network that is truly making dreams come true.”
