Rose Southon, who lives at Skylark House, has always loved travelling and dreamed of going to Paris. So much so, she made a wish upon the home’s ‘Wishing Tree’ to take a trip to Paris.

Working with Rose’s son, Nick, the team at Skylark House helped make her wish for a once in a lifetime trip to Paris to see the sights come true.

Hopping on board the Eurostar from Ebbsfleet International to Paris, Rose, Nick and Patricia, a carer from Skylark House, arrived in the city for a weekend of sightseeing, including a special trip to the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. Rose embraced the French lifestyle and enjoyed a visit to a Parisian café where she had lobster and sampled some local tipples. 

Rose said “This experience was the trip of a lifetime and I am delighted that I had the chance to enjoy Paris’ famous landmarks in person. It was such a brilliant surprise - I cannot thank Nick and the team at Skylark enough for helping arrange the trip, and giving me the chance to visit Paris.”

Skylark House home manager, Devendra Lallchand, commented “We always like to go the extra-mile to grant the residents’ wishes. I am really pleased that we were able to grant this wish for Rose.

“Rose had a wonderful trip, and thoroughly enjoyed the chance to get to see the sights of Paris in person – we were delighted to be able to help Nick arrange the special trip. We like to go above and beyond for the residents, and we’re really pleased that we could help make this dream come true for Rose.”
