Lancaster Grange Care Home launches indoor cruise experience to Unites States for residents




The daughter of the first resident to live at a care home has helped launch a cruise experience for residents ­— without them having to leave their home.

The Liberty Liner, Lancaster Grange Care Home’s winter cruise, has set sail to the US after stops in Germany and England.

Colleen Bennett, general manager at the home, whose mother was one of the first residents, introduced the concept to give residents a chance to enjoy different themed weeks.
