WIndle Court drone experience (003)

Residents at Windle Court in South Woodham Ferrers in Essex were treated to a rare view from the clouds when local drone pilot, Jason, came to visit.

Using high tech goggles linked to a camera, the residents were able to take in amazing views from 100ft above as Jason flew his drone over the surrounding area.

Spectacular views enjoyed by the residents included local landmarks such as the River Crouch, Meadow Croft Garden Centre, an aerial view of their home, as well as the surrounding landscape.

Windle Court is a well-established care home providing 24 hour care for older people, including those living with dementia.
