Riding the Journey of Life

3 minute read

Millennium Care have had their Wigan and Bury-based buses wrapped, featuring Betty Hill, a former resident at Lavender Hills Care Home in Ramsbottom.

The buses are not just a means of transportation; it's a vehicle that creates connection. Residents soon find themselves surrounded by fellow residents, caregivers, and volunteers exploring the world outside the care home.

Thanks to the new revamp we hope residents, staff and family members can be proud of the available transportation at our home’s fingertips which will add to the countless benefits accessible vehicles can bring.

Betty Hill was a remarkable individual who has called our Lavender Hills 'home' for ten months. She took part in a recent photo shoot at the home, and we were delighted to be able to use one of the portrait shots within the buses' new designs.

Designed and wrapped by Wrapped UK and photographed by Vision Photos we’d like to thank them for doing such an amazing job from start to finish.

“Today, we shine a spotlight on one extraordinary resident whose journey on the care home minibus has become an inspiring tale of joy, connection, and the enduring spirit of community.

“Betty Hill's story has become a beacon of hope within our care home. It serves as a reminder that life doesn't stop at the doors of our facility.”

Kala Morton, Home Manager at Lavender Hills

“I was very touched when I was approached to see if they could put this on the bus. Mum would have been very proud to know that her photograph is being used.

“It's a lovely photograph and I'm looking forward to seeing it in person and catching up with the amazing staff.”

Betty’s daughter, Jacqueline Johnson
