Toby's Story

Meet Toby, who lives at Pears Court

Toby Drage, who will be 86 in a few weeks’ time, was the first tenant to move into Pears Court at Sandringham this week. Toby was a weekend receptionist at Jewish Care’s former care home on the Sandringham site, the Princess Alexandra Home, for ten years. Sadly, Toby’s husband passed away two and a half years ago. Toby said, “I wanted to live independently, and I wanted a Jewish environment, so I knew I wanted a Jewish Care Retirement Living flat. By living here, I'm also alleviating worry for my children. My children love close by, and my grandchildren are spread out. Everyone here is so kind and helpful, the move has definitely been the right one for me and it’s gone well.”

Pears Court at Sandringham is an exciting addition to the local community, and we look forward to sharing more news as more tenants move in and the community there grows.
