Reuniting in Care  

February saw two emotional reunions in our Leeds care homes, Aire View and Grove Park. 

The 14th of February wasn’t just a special day due to Valentine’s Day, it was also the day Margaret, who has resided at Aire View for two years, was permanently reunited with her husband, Tom, who joined the community as a new resident to be with his loved one. Not baring to be apart, Margaret, wife to Tom of 67 years, said, “I am extremely happy to be able to live with Tom again. I have wanted him to join our community for a long time, and now he is finally here!” 

At Grove Park, Betty, who has been a resident on the Roundhay Suite since last August, was treated to a delightful surprise when her former neighbour of 20 years, Jean, joined the home. The pair, unaware that they would both be living at Grove Park together, shared a touching moment when they discovered that they had become neighbours again and swiftly picked up from where they had left off.
