92-Year-Old Elderly Care Home Resident Fulfills 'Boyhood Dream' To Finally Go Skiing
December 23, 2019
A 92-year-old nursing home resident has fulfilled his wish to go skiing for the first time.
Robert Trulocke had always wanted to try skiing, describing it was a "boyhood ambition", but thought he had missed his chance.
But staff at Care UK's Millers Grange worked with the Snozone in Milton Keynes to make his wish come true.
"It was fantastic to finally get to ski, especially as I'd given up trying to make it happen myself," Trulocke said.
"I wanted to thank everyone who made it possible, particularly the team at Snozone and my friends at Millers Grange who arranged everything. I had a wonderful day that I will never forget.
My favorite part was being able to do the slalom, weaving in and out, and whizzing down the slope – it made me feel alive.
Age doesn't have to hold you back from your dreams, and I hope I proved that today."
