It is not always easy to choose the right Christmas gift for our residents. We try so hard to choose something that they would like, something personal. This was easy with Bill, Bill is a huge fan of Queen, he has seen them in concert several times, a fact that makes many of us green with envy. Lifestyle assistant Michelle had the brilliant idea to get Bill a ticket to see a Queen tribute act.
On the 4th of February, the big night arrived. Michelle came in on her night off to help Bill to get ready and to escort him to the Deco Theatre. The theatre staff were wonderful and went over and above to accommodate Michelle and Bill.
The show got underway, and Bill was in his element from the very first song. He knew all of the words and sang along to every one of them. Michelle kept in touch, sharing photos and videos. It was so wonderful to see Bill having such a lovely time, totally immersed in the music and showmanship.
Bill couldn’t wait to tell us all about the show, and we couldn’t wait to hear his thoughts, it was obvious from his enthusiasm that he’d had a brilliant time.
It felt so good to be able to do this for Bill, and to see Bill so happy. He may have had to wait a little longer for his Christmas gift but from the smile on his face I’d guess that it was worth the wait.
