Harrogate woman, 105, opens care home visiting pods

A Harrogate care home resident, who turns 105-years-old this week, has celebrated by opening visiting pods.

Molly Robinson lives at The Gatehouse Residential Care Home and was guest of honour at today’s unveiling.

The care home has previously only been able to allow video calls and window visits, so it has seen plenty of demand for the pods.

Care home manager Adam Carling told the Stray Ferret:

“This allows us to have those visits in person again. The impact on wellbeing is what we need.

“It’s lovely and warm, comfortable and accessible. It is easy to have those meaningful conversations in here.”

When asked what Molly’s secret was to a long life, she said: “I’m not telling him.”
