95-year-old Neath care home Resident’s wish comes true with ‘Butler in the Buff’One Residents’ unlikely dream was fulfilled at Cwrt-Clwydi-Gwyn Care Home, in Neath, as she dined with a ‘Butler in the Buff’!

95-year-old Muriel Treszke has lived at the HC-One owned home since April 2022 and on the first day she met Eileen Coyle-Jones, Area Director in South Wales, she told her how she would love to see a ‘Butler in the Buff’. 

After organising this with Colleagues, Relatives and Muriel herself, the wish was granted and accompanied by her daughter, Ursula Morgan and fellow Resident, Verna, who Muriel invited to join her, they were served afternoon tea by ‘Butler in the Buff’, Matt. 

The home’s incredible Chef Kris worked very hard creating lots of homemade scones, sandwiches and Muriel's favourite; strawberries dipped in chocolate. Muriel has not had a drink for some time but really enjoyed her prosecco, that Matt served her, along with all the delicious treats. 

They chatted about what music Muriel liked and about her life. She likes to dance so Matt looked for some songs suitable to her taste and asked if she would like to dance. He even gave her a twirl!

Muriel commented, 
“It was one of the best days I have ever had and one I will never forget I have been feeling a bit low of late, but this has made me very happy". 

When talking about Cwrt-Clwydi-Gwyn care home, Ursula Morgan added,
“You have an amazing home here; I knew the minute I walked in it was the right home for mum. This has made her so happy amazing day thank you so much.”

Home Manager at Cwrt-Clwydi-Gwyn Care Home, Lisa Llewellyn, said,
“I am so proud that we can make our beautiful Residents’ dreams come true.”

Eileen Coyle-Jones, Area Director for South Wales, commented, 
“The first day I met Muriel, she told me her dream. To see that dream fulfilled and the smile on her face was priceless and reminded me of the importance of kind care is to ensure we support the Residents to live their best lives, and that is what Muriel was doing.”

Butler in the Buff, Matt stated,
“I was asked to visit the home as a goodwill gesture and a favour for a friend. I thought, why not! It was a delight meeting Muriel and Verna, and I am so glad that I could help them to create a fun and memorable celebration.”
