Care home resident and lifelong Arsenal fan rewarded for kindness


arsenal-emirates-care-industry-newsHartford Care’s Hythe home have rewarded a resident with a special trip for two to the Emirates Stadium.

Alan Dyer, 79, has shown generosity and kindness throughout his time at the home. Having only been a resident for two months he has already made a difference to the staff and the other residents lives. Alan’s acts of kindness include bringing round the newspaper in the morning and making a cup of tea for the residents and for the less able he makes sure to go round to their rooms for a morning chat. The ladies and gentleman at West Cliff Hall say they thoroughly enjoy Alan ‘making his rounds’ and that he brings an uplifting energy to the home.

One particular act of compassion the staff noticed was when one West Cliff couple were running low on toiletries and he took it upon himself to go to the local shops with his own money and fill up on supplies for them.

On the 12th of July 2016, Alan and his son Gary got to take their tour of the state of art stadium. Alan wrote a letter to Home Manager, Amanda Tanner and the team about his experiences from the day and ended it by writing: “It was a wonderful experience for both myself and Gary and a thank you to Hartford Care for the hard work and to give us a day we will always remember. Thanks to all who made the contribution.”
