‘The Best Decision I’ve Ever Made…’

‘My name is Ben Tilson and I’m 77 years young. I moved into Littleton Lodge in July 2023 from Luton to be closer to my nearest and dearest, and I have loved every moment.

‘When looking for care, I wanted to know that someone would be there for me should I need them 24 hours a day. I love company, and that’s what I have here!

‘I get up in the morning and the wonderful team brings me a nice hot drink to my bedroom. I get ready and head downstairs, where I join all my friends for a delicious breakfast in the lounge. Mealtimes here are lovely, we sit with each other and catch up on all the latest headlines and the activities we’re doing that day.

‘So far, I’ve taken part in crafting sessions, movie clubs in the cinema room, gardening, and exercise classes, and that’s just the beginning! I especially enjoy taking trips to the garden centre and to the local pub for a meal.

‘Last Christmas, I dressed up as Santa and the care team took me to deliver gifts to children at Sandwell General Hospital – I love putting a smile on people’s faces and spreading joy in our community. It’s a wonderful feeling.

‘Moving into Littleton Lodge has been the best decision I’ve ever made. I would recommend it to anyone!’

Michelle Bywater, the Home Manager at Littleton Lodge, said, ‘Littleton Lodge isn’t just a home, it’s a lifestyle. With support from our dedicated care team, our residents are encouraged to live the life they want to lead, try new things, and achieve whatever goals they aspire to.
