Fred's surprising stay at Elmhurst

Posted on

Ruth Holder, Registered Manager at Elmhurst Short Stay, told us:

"Fred came into our care from a service that he had lived in for over 20 years and the staff who brought him said he would never settle. Within a few days, however, he had 24 posters in his room all laminated by Vicki, and each night he would point to one and tell the night staff which film he wanted to watch, be it Bruce Lee or Arnie. 


Fred is a mad keen United supporter and as his birthday was drawing near, we started a staff collection to buy him his one and only United top. On his last day with us we threw an early birthday party and all Fred could say was "That’s what I wanted!". He was made up to say the least!"
