On Friday 7th October, Birtley Resident, Dr. Bobby Reynolds set sail at Papercourt Sailing Club with the Sailability Team. Bobby has been a keen sailor all his life and his family suggested that he might enjoy getting out on the water again. Birtley Matron, Karen Williams, assessed the suggestion and two carers, Rad & Dorotka Ciba offered to accompany Bobby (on their day off).
Bobby was helped into the boat with a hoist and they set sail - the grin on Bobby's face tells the whole story. The outing was a huge success and it was a fantastic achievement by all involved to fulfill the wishes of one of our Residents.
