Care home resident Molly Borges at Leysdown

Residents of Rogers House residential home in Wigmore, Gillingham, embraced the summer sunshine and headed to Leysdown for a nostalgic day at the beach.


On Friday 3rd July, the sun was shining and the skies were beautifully blue, so it was the perfect opportunity for staff to take residents on an eagerly anticipated trip to the glorious Kent coastline.


Upon arriving at Leysdown, the residents enjoyed a short stroll along the sunny seafront before cooling down in the beachside café.


They relaxed and chatted to one another about their memories of days spent at the seaside, whilst taking in the sea views and tucking into a tasty treat of tea and cake, before heading home for a well-deserved rest.


Lorraine Laker, care co-ordinator at Rogers House said: “A number of the residents expressed an interest in spending a day at Leysdown, so whilst the weather was lovely and warm we thought it was the perfect opportunity to take them out for the day.


“Everyone had a lovely day and it was particularly sentimental for a few of the residents who used to holiday in Leysdown with their families when they were younger.”
