Parklands Lodge resident featured in Liverpool Echo

103-year-old Wilf Cockbain recently made headlines following an interview that took place at Parklands Lodge.

Wanting to find out more about Wilf, who was born during World War I, the Liverpool Echo visited the lodge to chat to one of Athena Healthcare Group’s oldest residents who shared stories of his life while telling the newspaper how he keeps up to the date with the latest technology through the use of his iPhone and iPad daily!


“What a fabulous home this is! My father has recently moved here from another local care home. He is encouraged to be active, involved and engaged by the Manager and his fantastic team. Visits are a joy as Dad is happy and excited to tell me his news about how he has spent his day. The family kitchen facility means that we can make and drink tea together just as we did when he was at home. I cant praise this service enough- After working for many years in the care home industry I am aware that we all strive to give residents purpose but in my experience, few succeed. Trust me when I say Parklands lodge does what it says on the tin - I cant praise this service enough !”
