We are very happy to share that our safe visitation lodge, The Rawsthorne Retreat, officially opened for families and friends of our Lakeside residents to visit their loved ones at the end of August.
The grand opening was a very exciting day for both Lakeside and Worthington Lake care homes as we celebrated the opening of the retreat.
Named after our Lakeside resident, Alan Rawsthorne, the man of honour cut the ribbon himself and declared the lodge open for visits to begin. He was then shown inside for a wonderful surprise as we revealed that his niece was waiting for him on the other side! It was such a heartwarming moment for everyone watching.
The Rawsthorne Retreat is the first of it’s kind in the North West and we’re so pleased to be able to share it with our residents and family members as our commitment to keep you connected and safe during the ongoing pandemic.
Since opening, we’ve already have over 150 visitations booked through our website which is such an incredible result. We’re hoping that family and loved ones of our care home residents enjoy their visits for the lodge and being reunited in a more personal way than over video calls.
