Where youll work

One of the truly special things about Beach Lawns is the way the team strives to make their residents wishes come true. Working together the homes activities team do everything in their power to make their dreams come true - no matter how big or small. One such resident is 69-year-old Adele Steen, who took to the skies in a helicopter over Weston-super-Mare. Adele, who has used a wheelchair all her life after contracting polio at an early age, has always been fascinated with the sky, so the team made her dream of flying become a reality. Staff, residents and family watched as Adele was flown over Beach Lawns in her own chartered flight from The Helicopter Museum. Another resident told home manager Lyn that he was determined to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief. Unfortunately, due to his mobility, this was not possible but he came up with an even better idea that could get everyone involved. With the support of the team, he organised a sponsored walk around the home, gardens and adjoining park with fellow residents and staff members, raising £500 for charity.
