Oaklands sends Roger to space!

As part of our Send a Smile campaign, we helped Roger, a resident at Oaklands, take a trip of a lifetime…to space!

When we heard that Roger loved space and his dream was to see a rocket launch, we knew we had to do something about it.

Our Activities Coordinator, Mandy, pulled out all the stops to send a very special smile to Roger by taking our residents on a space adventure (from their armchairs).

Roger got to experience a rocket launch as we turned the lounge into our very own spaceship, with real-life rocket launches playing on the TV. Once we left the atmosphere, Roger and our residents put on their spacesuits and explored different parts of our solar system via our interactive screen.

Commenting on his space adventure, Roger said; “I was always interested in space and this event made it come to life.”

Our Activities Coordinator, Mandy, added; “We love to think outside the box and create unique experiences for our residents. We’re thrilled that Roger enjoyed his little adventure. It means the world to us to see a smile on all our residents’ faces”.


Roger’s story is just one example of the dedicated care and support our team at Oaklands provides for residents every day. If you would like to learn more about care provided at Oaklands, please give us a call on 02380845759.
