Official Opening of Maisie’s Kitchen

6 Jun 2023

A delicious, Italian themed lunch was celebrated in Ronson Household to mark the official opening of Maisie’s Kitchen. Maisie Barnett was a Resident at Nightingale House for 16 months and she loved to bake. Her son David and daughter-in-law Rachel donated the kitchen in her memory.

Residents of Ronson made letters of her name on ceramic tiles and enjoyed a lunch of Tricolore salad and pesto pasta, washed down with a glass of wine and espresso.

When Maisie arrived at Nightingale House her spirit was broken. She had recently lost her husband and had broken her hip after a fall. Nightingale house and the Staff and Residents of Ronson Household brought her spirit back. She regained her love of cooking and engaged with all the activities the Home offered.

Nightingale House restored my mum to how I remembered her at her very best. This is such an incredible Home, I can’t praise it enough.” – David Barnett
