Making new memories with Howdon’s Wishing Tree

Here at Howdon Care Centre we’ve created a Wishing Tree, full of our residents’ wishes.

From ballroom dancing and performing with one of our visiting singers, to a simple wish for a fish & chip supper, our Magic Moments team will be making sure every wish is granted, even where practicalities and care needs means a creative approach is needed.

Joan, pictured, has made a wish to dine on the Orient Express so we are planning on decorating our cinema room and showing an immersive tour of the famous train while she enjoys a delicious dinner.

Magic Moments Coordinator, Lauren, said: “It’s so important that we spend quality time with all our residents, chatting about their past and finding out what they’d like to do next. It’s lovely to reminisce about happy memories and make lots of new ones.”

Howdon Care Centre is located in Wallsend, Newcastle upon Tyne and provides residential care, nursing care, respite care, palliative care and residential dementia care.
