While taking in the live entertainment, fun and games with her fellow residents and community members at the fair, Rachael noticed children having a blast on the bouncy castle and told a care team member that she’d never had the opportunity to bounce on one herself.

Stacie Weaver, the Home Manager at Cadley Hill View, said, ‘We couldn’t believe Rachael had never jumped on a bouncy castle! When we asked Rachael if she wanted to have a go, she couldn’t wait to hop on.’
