Thomas Timson was one of the first residents to arrive at the luxury Abbotswood Court care home when the purpose-built facility opened in Romsey in 2015. He made the decision to move following the passing of his beloved wife after 65 years of marriage. Having shared many cherished years together, her absence had a huge impact on Tom’s life and his love for singing became a neglected pastime. Even though his son lives nearby, living alone without someone to share his music with, was too big an adjustment.
Abbotswood Court, a luxury care home in Romsey, Hampshire, hosted a carers’ coffee morning on November 29, to mark Carers Rights Day 2018 (November 30), with expert speakers.
