A care home has treated a married couple in their 90’s to their first date night since moving to the home.

Rosebank Care Home, in Bampton, organised a date night at a pub, Trout at Tadpole Bridge, for 94-year-old Vic and 95-year-old Eileen.

The lifestyle team at the care home not only arranged their date but also set up a bowling experience at RAF Brize Norton for them.

Eileen said: "We had a lovely evening and would love to go again soon."

Vic and Eileen met each other at a fun fair more than 65 years ago.

They had gone separately but ended up going on the merry go round together.

They will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary next year.

Jasmine, a lifestyle coordinator at Rosebank Care Home, said: "It was so heart warming to see Vic and Eileen share such a special moment - their bond is incredible.

"We’re looking forward to creating many more date nights for them in the future."

Vanessa Lavender, home manager, added: "Just because you’ve moved into a care home, doesn’t mean you stop living your life; people living in care homes should be able to express their love and enjoy their life and Vic and Eileen are the perfect example of that.

“At Rosebank, we’re committed to enriching the lives of our residents in every way possible and being able to create such moments for them is a great pleasure.”
