Robert’s Bucket List…

Making precious memories!

Robert is 98 and resides at our home Foxhunters Care Community in Abergavenny. Last Friday, he was up at 2am having a shave, filled with excitement. The home arranged for him to go to Cardiff and meet the Devils Ice Hockey Team.

Before the war, Robert played for fun and enjoyed watching the Scottish and Canadian teams play. He used to collect the broken sticks from the matches and try to tape them back together!

“The Cardiff Devils team were all so polite and welcoming,” Robert shared with us.

“I had their undivided attention and had prepared a lot of questions which they kindly answered for me. I am thrilled they have invited me back to watch another game as their guest!”

Life doesn’t have to stop just because you move in to a care home and we enjoy making memories no matter what your age!
